A British crocodile expert named Adam Britton has admitted guilt on 60 counts, including animal mistreatment, bestiality, and accessing child abuse materials.
Adam Britton, a well-known British crocodile expert who was detained in April 2022 on suspicion of abusing animals, has admitted to 60 crimes related to bestiality.
Britton has admitted to abusing dozens of canines until nearly all of them died while filming the deed, the BBC reported.
According to the study, Britton also posted all of his recordings online, where he had access to child abuse information.
Investigations into the case revealed that Britton had a shipping container on his property that had been outfitted with recording equipment and was used as a “torture room” for animals, according to the court’s hearing.
39 of the 42 dogs he mistreated and killed in the 18 months before his arrest.
Chief Justice Michael Grant requested that everyone leave the courtroom during a hearing in the Northern Territory (NT) Supreme Court on Monday because Britton’s offences were too gruesome to be published.
Grant expressed fear that learning the details of the case would result in “nervous shock” as well, according to the article.
Prosecutors also claimed that since at least 2014, Britton had a “sadistic sexual interest” in animals. He took advantage of his own pets and tricked other dog owners into giving him theirs for the same reason he did with his own.
Britton conducted an online search to find pet owners who were willing to part with their animals because of travel or employment obligations. He then established a rapport with them in order to discuss acquiring ownership of the animals.
According to the prosecution, whenever the pet owners contacted Britton for updates, he would give them “false narratives” and send them outdated pictures.
At a later time, Britton, a renowned zoologist who has contributed to BBC and National Geographic projects, will be sentenced.
To work with crocodiles, he relocated to Australia more than 20 years ago.
