Guilty Plea in Shocking Case
Adam Britton, a British crocodile expert and academic at Charles Darwin University, has pleaded guilty to a series of heinous crimes involving animal abuse and child exploitation.
Abuse of Dogs and Puppies
Britton, who once hosted broadcaster David Attenborough, admitted to sexually abusing and torturing over 40 dogs and dozens of puppies.
He lured pet owners into giving him custody of their beloved dogs before subjecting them to horrific abuse.
Abuse of His Own Pets
Disturbingly, Britton also confessed to sexually abusing his own Swiss Shepherd pets, Ursa and Bolt, over a period of nearly a decade.
Recorded Acts of Torture
Britton filmed himself torturing defenseless animals in what he referred to as his “torture room.”
He would then post this sickening material online.
In court, Britton pleaded guilty to 56 counts of animal cruelty and four counts of accessing and transmitting child abuse material.
