A British crocodile expert has pleaded guilty to r@ping dozens of puppies and torturing more than 40 dogs at his animal shelter.
Adam Britton, 51, who grew up in West Yorkshire before moving to Australia, admitted to luring pet owners to give him custody of their beloved dogs before abusing them.
At the Supreme Court of the Northern Territory, he also admitted to s£xually abusing his own Swiss Shepherd pets, Ursa and Bolt, for almost a decade.
The academic at Charles Darwin University in northern Australia once hosted broadcaster David Attenborough at his home.
Britton would even film himself torturing the defenceless animals in what he called his “torture room” until most of them died before posting the sick material online, the court heard.
Britton, a leading zoologist who has worked with the BBC and National Geographic on productions, pleaded guilty to 56 counts of animal cruelty in court yesterday, Sept. 25.
