26-year-old Jenna Driscoll is set to stand trial over an alleged video of her having sex with a dog.

Police in Brisbane allegedly found more than they bargained on when the searched a phone belonging to Driscoll, who they suspected of drug dealing.

Police arrested Driscoll and searched her phone for any information regarding the sale of narcotics. However, they reportedly discovered a number of bestiality videos. 

Mark Townend, CEO of RSPCA Queensland, said: "This isn’t something you’d normally expect, it’s quite unusual. The last case I can recall was a few years ago, it certainly isn’t something we hear reported often.

"Under the Animal Care Protection Act bestiality isn’t included. To take action and remove the dog we would have to prove actions there were cruel or that it was tormented.

"The RSPCA would ideally like to get a dog out of the situation if bestiality was happening, but to operate under the act we would have to prove those two things.

"We’d try to do everything we can to help the dog if that is the case."

When the case came to light and she was charged in 2014, Driscoll was pictured entering her home with a man and a dog, thought to be a pit bull.

The 26-year-old is charged with drug trafficking, possession of a dangerous drug, two counts of possession of an item used in the commission of a crime, three counts of supplying and a further three counts of bestiality.

She has now been formally indicted with bestiality and drug trafficking. A trial date has not yet been set and she denies the charges.
