    A zoologist has admitted to a catalogue of sick acts including raping puppies and torturing dogs at an animal shelter.

    Crocodile expert Adam Britton was named as the serial animal abuser on Monday (September 25). He pleaded guilty to 60 charges including the torture, rape, and killing of at least 39 dogs.

    The 52-year-old grew up in West Yorkshire before moving to Australia, where the vile acts were carried out. It is believed he began offending in 2014 and has tortured and sexually exploited more than 42 dogs – including his own pets Ursa and Bolt.

    Britton, who once hosted legendary broadcaster David Attenborough and worked with the BBC and National Geographic, described the animals as “f*** toys” before his arrest in April 2022. He abused his own Swiss Shepherds for almost a decade before moving on to other animals.

    He moved to Gumtree Australia to source more animals to torture or kill. Britton used the online marketplace to offer services to pet owners who need a dog sitter to watch their pets while they travel or work.

    He would then negotiate for custody of the dog. If the owner asked for updates on the animal, they were spun a “false narrative” and sent old photos.

    According to reports he videoed himself in what he called his ‘torture room’ hurting the defenceless animals until most died. Britton also shared videos and images of him sexually abusing animals online.

    Yesterday, he pleaded guilty to 56 counts of animal cruelty at the Supreme Court of the Northern Territory. He also admitted four counts of accessing and transmitting child abuse material.

    The chief Justice Michael Grant branded the crimes “grotesque” and urged the public to leave the room before the details were discussed.

    “These facts contain material that can only be described as grotesque and perverse acts of cruelty which is confronting and distressing and which in my assessment have the potential to cause nervous shock”, he said.

    A video was eventually sent to the Northern Territory Animal Welfare Branch and passed on to police who arrested Britton in April 2022. At the time, police seized 44 items including computers, mobile telephones, cameras, external hard drives, tools, weapons, sex toys and dog paraphernalia.

    Britton was charged last year, but his name was suppressed by the courts to ensure media attention would not bias a jury against him.

    The order was lifted after he pleaded guilty. He has been remanded in custody since then and is expected to be sentenced on December 13.

    According to the MailOnline, Britton's wife Erin, a wildlife ranger who met Prince Harry and helped him catch a saltwater crocodile, was unaware of her husband's disturbing fantasies and has since reportedly changed her surname.
