Man who filmed himself stealing sheep had animal porn on his phone

A pervert who kept animal porn and posted videos of himself kidnapping a sheep on Snapchat has avoided jail.

Ali El-Aridi, 23, filmed himself chasing and snatching the terrified animal before bundling it into his car and dumping it in a street 12 miles away.

He can be heard saying ‘I’ll eat you tonight baby girl’ as he grabs the defenceless creature.

El-Aridi then turns to the rest of the flock and says: ‘Wallah, I’ve grabbed one of your pagans’.

He took she sheep from the banks of Ladybower Reservoir in Derbyshire and abandoned it in the streets of Sheffield last August.

El-Aridi, from, Sheffield, was nailed after social media users spotted pictures and videos of the kidnapping and shared it on Facebook.

Derbyshire Police identified El-Aridi and raided his home where they discovered extreme pornography on his mobile phone along with footage of the sheep theft.

One of the images involved a dead cat in various sexual acts with a man and a video of a horse having oral sex with a man.

Within a day, the sheep had been reunited with its owner, having been rescued from the Wincobank area of Sheffield.

El-Aridi avoided a jail sentence after admitting theft and being found guilty of possessing extreme pornography.

He was sentenced to a 12-month community order and must complete 100 hours of unpaid work, and pay £620 in costs.
