SADISTIC dog rapist Adam Britton hid his sick lifestyle in plain sight for years as he rubbed shoulders with TV elites and lived a twisted double life online.
The British crocodile expert, 51, carried out the sick attacks for eight years behind his wife’s back.
39 innocent animals died at Adam’s hands after suffering unspeakable abuse, which he filmed and distributed online.
In one chilling message on Telegram, Adam spoke about his urges to a stranger: “I had repressed it. In the last few years, I let it out again, and now I can’t stop. I don’t want to.”
Adam’s Telegram account had 114where he described how he acquired the pets and how he abused them.
The twisted pet owner even shared photos of his two dogs, Ursa and Bolt, whom he regularly abused, on his Flickr accounts.
In one chilling photo, his dog Bolt was pictured as a puppy in 2015 – a year after Adam began regularly abusing hisand other .
Adam regularly posted photos of dogs, including on Flickr, in an album chillingly labelled “just a reminder of the best bits of home.”
Social media posts and photos have revealed Britton’s wife even metHarry when he visited in 2015 and worked alongside saltwater crocodiles.
There is no suggestion that Erin, a biologist and wildlife ranger, knew anything about her husband’s crimes, and she appears to have dropped his surname online.
Photos showed Erin smilingto the as he snared a crocodile – the animal which her disturbed former husband was an expert on.
She toldmedia at the time: “I was a little nervous at first when I was getting the snout rope on the croc, because Harry was observing so closely.”
Adam and his wife had also hosted Sir David Attenborough at their home while he filmed part of the BBC documentary ‘Life In Cold Blood.’
Adam reminisced over the meeting in a 90th birthday blog post in 2016: “David Attenborough, it turns out, is even more remarkable inas he is on the screen.
“He’s not a big fan of hero worship, so we had to rein that in, but he’s just a normal, humble, down-to-Earth kinda guy who is incredibly smart and possessed of a razor-sharp wit.”
The British senior researcher at Charles Darwin University in Australia – pleaded guilty to the “grotesque and perverse” acts at Darwin’s Northern Territory Supreme Court on Monday.
Adam would use websites like Gumtree to “adopt”for his gruesome crimes, and many pet owners gave up their animals because they had no choice due to moving away due to work or travel commitments.
Last year, cops seized 44 items including computers, mobile phones, cameras, external hard drives, tools, and weapons during a raid of his home, according to Daily Mail.
Prosecutor Marty Aust said Adam’s crimes were too sick to be published, as he had a “sadistic sexual interest in animals and in particular.”
He has been remanded in custody after pleading guilty to 37 counts of animal cruelty, ten counts of raping or attempting to rape a dog, and four counts of possessing or transmitting child abuse material.
Adam will return to court on December 13 for sentencing.
