Adam Britton, a renowned British crocodile expert and zoologist who has worked on BBC and National Geographic productions, admitted Monday in an Australian court to 60 charges relating to bestiality and child abuse material, Tiffanie Turnbull reports for BBC News. Britton filmed himself torturing 42 dogs over 18 months, 39 of which died, and then posted the videos online, where he also accessed child abuse material. He would use the online marketplace platform Gumtree Australia to find people who were giving their pets, building a “rapport” with them to negotiate taking custody of the animals. He was abusing the animals in a shipping container on his property that had been fitted out with recording equipment. Britton remains in custody and will return to court for a sentencing hearing in December.
