  • Adam Britton sent lies to innocent families on Gumtree Australia
  • READ MORE: Single clue that brought down dog rapist Adam Britton

EXCLUSIVE, WARNING: Graphic content 

Emails from a disgraced crocodile expert show how he preyed upon innocent families by promising to give their dogs a good home – when he actually planned to rape, torture and murder the beloved pets.

Adam Britton, 52, obtained about 42 dogs between 2020 and 2022 by trawling through ads on Gumtree Australia searching for people in the Darwin area who were looking to rehome their animals.

He had alerts on his phone when a new dog was listed for sale, and would quickly email the owners and build rapport by telling them he could give their pets a good life, and that he was simply ‘after a companion’.

In truth, Britton was taking the canines to sexually abuse and kill them on camera.

On Monday, the once-respected zoologist pleaded guilty in Darwin’s Supreme Court to a string of charges relating to animal abuse, bestiality, and the possession of child exploitation material. 

Daily Mail Australia can reveal one of the victims was a tan-coloured female dog called Kiki, who belonged to an ill woman who was no longer able to care for her.

Her family, who did not want to be identified, was horrified when NT Police phoned them last year and explained Britton’s abuse. The woman’s sister said that Britton ‘didn’t seem like that when you met him’.

She explained Kiki was one of three abandoned puppies adopted by her family.

‘I kept one female, my sister kept one female, and a mate took the boy, but my sister got sick and had to go into hospital for a long time,’ she said.

‘My girl wouldn’t have any other female dog in her yard as they were now almost two… so the only option for us was to search for a good home as we couldn’t have them both.’

Britton contacted the woman four weeks later, on September 22, 2021, and spun a web of lies – claiming his dog had passed away a few months earlier and he was looking for a companion.

‘I’m very interested to meet your 1.5-year-old girl with a view to giving her a good home,’ he wrote.

‘I live on a five-acre block in Humpty Doo, no other dogs too so she’d get the best of both worlds. I haven’t had a dog since my last girl died a few months ago but I miss her and need another companion.

‘I can help you out by offering her a great home.’

In reality, Britton owned two Swiss Shepherd pets, Ursa and Bolt – who he also sexually abused – and regularly bought other dogs from around the area.

The woman replied to Britton’s email and explained she was only giving Kiki up because she had to, and said she was a loving dog who was afraid of people she didn’t know.

Britton replied: ‘I’m sorry to hear that your health prevents you from continuing to keep Kiki, that can’t be an easy decision.

‘Perhaps I can make it slightly easier by ensuring she finds a good home with me.

‘I’m the kind of person who wants a dog to be close all the time, the place seems empty otherwise.’ 

Four days later, on September 26, he sent another email to say Kiki was ‘very sweet’ and they were ‘bonding already’.

‘She will have a good home here,’ he added.

According to court documents, Kiki didn’t survive the week.

Between September 26 and 30, Britton took Kiki and two other large dogs named Rose and Marylou to a shipping container on his property and filmed himself raping and torturing each pet until they died.

The details are so gruesome Daily Mail Australia has chosen not to publish them.

On October 16, he replied to a message from the previous owner who asked how Kiki was settling in.

‘She is doing great,’ he wrote, adding that he was happy with her, and he believed she was she was doing well in her new home.

The woman told Daily Mail Australia she was devastated by Britton’s depraved actions and questioned her decision to give Kiki to someone else.

‘I just wish I never gave her up and could have kept her somehow and made it work,’ she said.

‘It’s absolutely horrible that a human can do this to an animal… he is a sick twisted man.’

Kiki was one of at least 39 dogs Britton raped and killed. He operated two Telegram accounts called ‘monster’ and ‘Cerberus’ – the latter being a three-headed dog in Greek mythology – between 2020 and 2022. 

He used accounts to engage with like-minded people about animal cruelty and bestiality, but his undoing came shortly he uploaded a video called ‘1B***h9Pups’ to an abuse website on March 22, 2022.

The following day, an anonymous internet user noticed the adult female dog was wearing an orange City of Darwin leash with the slogan ‘great pets start with you’.

They referred the footage to the NT Animal Welfare Branch via Gmail, which then referred the matter to police.

On April 22, a month after Britton posted the video online, NT Police and Australian Federal Police raided his McMinns Lagoon home, in Darwin’s south.

Detectives seized computers, mobile  phones, cameras, external hard drives, tools, weapons, dog paraphernalia and sex toys. 

They also found severed dog limbs in a freezer, a decomposing puppy in a pond on the property, and a severed dog head on a neighbouring property.

Britton was charged with 37 counts of animal cruelty, 10 counts of raping or attempting to rape a dog, and four counts of possessing or transmitting child abuse material.

He has been on remand in custody since his arrest and will appear in court again for sentencing on December 13.
