Adam Britton: British croc expert admits sexually abusing dogs and torture them to death

A renowned British crocodile expert has admitted to 60 charges relating to bestiality and child abuse material.
An Australian court heard Adam Britton filmed himself torturing dozens of dogs until almost all died.
He would then post videos of the incidents online, where he also accessed child abuse material.
A leading zoologist who has worked on BBC and National Geographic productions, Britton will be sentenced at a later date.
At a hearing in the Northern Territory (NT) Supreme Court on Monday, prosecutors laid out the case against him.
Much of the details of Britton's crimes are too graphic to publish, and so "grotesque" the judge warned people to leave the courtroom.
Chief Justice Michael Grant said he was concerned hearing the facts of the case could cause "nervous shock", before taking the rare step of excusing security officers and junior court officials, local media reported.
Britton had a "sadistic sexual interest" in animals since at least 2014, prosecutors told the court, and along with exploiting his own pets, he had manipulated other dog owners into giving him theirs.

The little-told story of the massive WWII pet cull

At the beginning of World War II, a government pamphlet led to a massive cull of British pets. As many as 750,000 British pets were killed in just one week. This little-discussed moment of panic is explored in a new book.
The cull came as the result of a public information campaign that caused an extraordinary reaction among anxious Britons.
In the summer of 1939, just before the outbreak of war, the National Air Raid Precautions Animals Committee (NARPAC) was formed. It drafted a notice - Advice to Animal Owners.

Tyrant Kim Jong-un ‘orders pet dogs be killed for restaurant meat because they’re a symbol of Western decadence’

The sadistic order by the North Korean leader is thought to be a aimed at dealing with food shortages and also because he believes pooches represent Western "decadence".
North Korea has launched a clampdown on the ownership of pet dogs among the Pyongyang elite as food supplies run short.
Trumpeted as protecting the country against capitalist "decadence," the move appears aimed at appeasing increasing public discontent amid the dire economic situation.
According to a source, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un issued a ban on pet ownership in July, denouncing it as "a 'tainted' trend by bourgeois ideology."
"Authorities have identified households with pet dogs and are forcing them to give them up or forcefully confiscating them and putting them down."

Vet left dog to die alone overnight at surgery despite advertising '24-hour care'

Riverside Veterinary Practice in Spalding, Lincolnshire, was cleared of dishonestly claiming it offered a 24/7 service after arguing that this meant vets were available to be called out at any hour.

A vet left a dog to die alone overnight despite the practice advertising that it offered '24-hour care'. Elizabeth Law was sanctioned by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons following the death of 11 year old German Shepherd - Wolfhound cross 'Kiwi'.
The disciplinary hearing was told that Miss Law carried out a successful emergency operation on the stricken dog but that he was then left to recuperate on his own for more than seven hours overnight. Kiwi was found dead the following morning, leaving its owners Penny and Anthony O'Callaghan devastated. They had taken their beloved pet to Riverside Veterinary Practice in Spalding, Lincolnshire, after they feared he was suffering from an urgent stomach condition. The O'Callaghans told the disciplinary hearing that one of the reasons they chose the practice to treat Kiwi was that it advertised itself as a 24/7 operation.
In its decision, a Royal College disciplinary panel said Miss Law - who has been a vet for nine years - had made a "serious mistake" which constituted a "serious lapse of clinical judgement". However, the practice was cleared of dishonestly claiming it offered a 24/7 service after arguing that this simply meant vets were available to be called out at any hour, rather than that it was permanently staffed round the clock.

'El perro de Freud y Rajoy'
by Mariano Gasparet

...Dejar las interpretaciones políticas en pos de respuestas profundas viene al caso porque es el 160 aniversario del nacimiento de Sigmund Freud, a quien todos debemos ciertas fijaciones y el uso de términos corrientes, como neurosis, líbido, fobia, represión o catársis, que en su día revolucionaron por novedosas la indagación médica.

De Freud a uno le agradan más algunos datos de su historia menuda que las teorías que estudiamos en el instituto. Y entre todas las anécdotas que construyen al personaje, mucho más que la de su afición a los puros, más que las que se desprenden de su correspondencia íntima, en la que anunciaba a su mujer fabulosos encuentros sexuales porque "irrefrenable es la pasión del hombre que lleva cocaína en las venas", más incluso que la de su comprensible devoción -compartida con Nietzsche y Paul Rée- hacia Lou Andreas-Salomé, resulta fascinante una sobre sus últimos días. El caso es que se moría el viejo Freud y tan enorme y hediondo era el tumor que le atrapaba la garganta que su perro le huía.

El doctor amaba a su perro y sufría, claro. Pero parece ser que el perro y el tumor de Freud fueron pues dos fuerzas antagónicas que crecieron en direcciones opuestas. El uno le era fiel y le acompañaba en las sesiones, de tal modo que contribuyó a la popularidad de sus terapias. El otro creció a costa de su tabaquismo, empezó como una pequeña molestia, creció sin que el inventor del psicoanálisis se armara de la voluntad necesaria para cortar de raíz el vicio, y acabó matando a Freud y apartando de él, en sus últimas horas, al ser más leal que jamás conoció en su enorme vida.

Bucharest dog cull plan divides Romanians

It is almost impossible to walk the streets of Bucharest for more than five minutes and not encounter a stray dog.
According to official estimates there are 65,000 of them - one for every 30 residents of the Romanian capital.
But this situation is about to change, if the government gets its way. Or, if a growing number of alarmed international protesters get theirs, it will not.
The government wants the dogs rounded up and, if not claimed within two weeks, put down.
While this proposal has plenty of support in Romania, protests have rapidly spread around the world, with critics deploring the impending "massacre".
There have been demonstrations outside Romanian embassies in some European capitals, and celebrities like Brigitte Bardot and Pamela Anderson have made forceful representations against the law.

En el aeropuerto de Sevilla un perro fue abandonando en un cajón de transporte -sin agua ni protección contra el tórrido sol- en ese reino de zarzuela y corrupción -individual y colectiva- que es España angustia (pasiva) del pasajero comenzó en el propio aeropuerto, una hora antes del embarque, cuando el operario que recogió al animal se negó a poner un cuenco de agua en el interior del transportín pese a las altas temperaturas, puesto que, según el funcionario, la normativa lo prohibía.
No obstante, el viajero solicitó que si veían al animal sofocado le diesen, al menos, agua. "Desde los ventanales de las puertas de embarque se veía otro avión hacia el que llevaban transportines con mascotas, que iban en los carros de las maletas con un techo de lona para que no les diera el sol y no tardaron más de diez minutos en embarcarlos", narra Francisco Javier Ramos, el dueño de la mascota, en un comunicado.
Según lamenta, al poco tiempo pudo ver a su perro que, en comparación con los primeros, "iba en una especie de elevador con cabina acristalada para el operario y una plataforma donde estaba el transportín a pleno sol y sin toldo, sin nada que le protegiera".
Una vez en Palma, señala la nota, el pasajero esperó el transportín en la cinta correspondiente sin que hiciese aparición. Fue después de 15 minutos de espera y sin explicaciones de lo ocurrido, añade, cuando lo llevaron a otro lugar dentro del aeropuerto más apartado, donde, tras exigir repetidamente ver al perro, le respondieron que "era posible que éste necesitase atención veterinaria porque estaba tumbado dentro del transportín y no se movía".
"Finalmente, tras pedir desesperado que lo trajeran lo más rápido posible para proporcionarle atención veterinaria urgentemente, le hicieron entrega del cadáver de Nano", señalan. "Air Berlín únicamente se ofreció a entregar a Francisco Javier un bono de 100 euros de descuento para una futura reserva de un vuelo. La 'low cost' alemana ni siquiera se hizo cargo del traslado de la mascota fallecida ni de la incineración", apuntan desde

'Alma de perro' por David Torres

y nuestra nota de lector:
Indigna a toda persona de buena voluntad la tortura a muerte en un “horno” y sin agua del bulldog inglés Nano.
Sin embargo, en mi opinión, el “culpable” primero de la muerte de Nano fue su dueño, quien a pesar de saber desde el primer momento que el operador del aeropuerto de Sevilla no quiso dar agua ni protección contra el ardiente sol a su perro, dejó que tal personaje se llevara a Nano encerrado en un cajón a una “muerte anunciada”.
No olvidemos que Nano es la única víctima de este horrendo crimen.
Francisco Javier, el dueño de Nano, pudo cancelar ese vuelo y no conformarse con pedir a semejante funcionario que le diera agua al perro "más tarde", si el perro necesitaba beber; dado que las condiciones climáticas y las condiciones del transporte exigían que Nano tuviera una provisión de agua fresca disponible desde el primer momento, además de protección contra el tórrido sol.
Estos hechos criminales pueden leerse como sintomáticos de ese reino de zarzuela que es Hispania, donde la corrupción e irresponsabilidad son una patologia cotidiana, individual y colectiva.
Como en la mayoría de los crímenes hay más de un culpable:
b) el funcionario que negó el debido cuidado a Nano, debe ser castigado severamente por ciega “obediencia debida” si es cierto que absurdas reglas del aeropuerto hispanense de Sevilla prohibían esos indispensables cuidados al perro que debian transportar a salvo (aunque la expresión "obediencia debida" inventada en paises hispanos, como la corrupta Argentina o España, es una contradicción en términos, dado que la etimología latina de la palabra obedecer, 'ob audere´, significa precisamente lo contrario al comportamiento del operador y del dueño: obedecer significa escuchar y actuar en harmonia con la propia consciencia, es decir nunca actuar en órdenes contrarias a la dignidad de la vida propia o ajena).
c) culpable de la muerte de Nano también es la compañía alemana Air Berlin. De ella cabe señalar que, como el aeropuerto de Sevilla, pertenece a un país que, como es el caso de España, no ha conocido en toda su historia la democracia institucional; ambos pueblos, hispanos y alemanes, son de los más sumisos del planeta habiendo propiciado dictadores infames como Hitler y Franco, porque su sistema institucional es, en ambos casos, la oligarquía de partidos estatales que, obviamente, no representan a ciudadanos sino que actúan al mando de los respectivos caudillos de los partidos que los emplean, es decir los sistemas anti-democráticos de España y Alemania promueven el caudillismo y la sumisa “obediencia” de sus pueblos, de ahí la actual tragedia de la Unión Europea. Se trata de dos pueblos europeos que desgraciadamente tampoco tienen educación democrática; sino hubiera primado el servicio al cliente, la protección de la vida, por debido respeto al ciudadano que paga por los servicios y funcionarios públicos. Por ello, contractualmente, Air Berlin también tiene que ser castigada severamente por el irreparable daño causado a la vida de Nano.
Es de lamentar, insisto, que el dueño no hiciera lo que se podía y moralmente debía hacer para evitar la tortura a muerte de Nano, más aún cuando él mismo reconoce -según la información publicada- haber presenciado -desde el comienzo de la operación- la absoluta falta de cuidado en la manipulación de su indefenso perro. Es decir, el dueño de Nano debió no solo quejarse, y menos aún confiar en un funcionario que se negó a poner agua para beber a Nano, sino que debió cancelar ese viaje en Air Berlin como precaución necesaria para proteger la vida de su perro.
Cabe señalar que la legislación internacional permite viajar a pasajeros con sus mascotas en la cabina del avión cuando los vuelos tienen una duración inferior a 4 horas. Pero si no hay en España compañias aéreas dispuestas a dar ese buen trato a una mascota en los vuelos domésticos, el propietario como responsable primero y último de la mascota, podía optar viajar en tren y en barco desde Sevilla hasta Mallorca. Al menos así actuamos muchos responsables de perros (u otras mascotas), cuando organizamos un viaje de larga distancia con nuestros amados compañeros caninos.
Por último, con tantos siglos de historia, cada hispano y más aún el periodista, debería tener consciencia que la causa de los graves problemas que padecen en esos países ignorantes de lo que es cultura e instituciones democráticas (tan empecinados en merecer el nombre latino de tierra de conejos), es la pasión unánime de descargar la responsabilidad individual en los “otros”. El periodismo debería alentar la auto-crítica, ese remedio indispensable para aprender de los errores propios y de horrores colectivos como la tortura a muerte de Nano.
Quizás este video que encontré en internet, publicado por un tal “Fran Guerra” (podría tratarse del mismo Francisco Javier y su Nano) sirva para recordar la vida cruelmente robada, por múltiples negligencias, a otro indefenso perro :

The perversity and cruelty of Spaniards abandoning pets

El número de perros, gatos, y otras mascotas, algunas insólitas, que vagan sin dueño por nuestros campos y ciudades es realmente insostenible. Apoyar a las asociaciones y autoridades que tratan de controlar este problema es muy necesario, y adoptar un animal de compañía puede ser la mejor forma de contribuir a mitigarlo.
...el número de perros y gatos abandonados en España anualmente alcanza cifras astronómicas. Hay que matizar que dentro de las estadísticas cabe distinguir entre aquellos que nunca tuvieron un dueño y los que, tras gozar del status de mascotas, fueron abandonados o perdidos por sus irresponsables o descuidados amos.

...El abandono no se produce de manera masiva cuando llegan las vacaciones. La lista de animales recogidos por las protectoras es dramáticamente uniforme durante el año entero, de manera que es necesario profundizar más para encontrar otros motivos, al menos complementarios.
La compra compulsiva es una de las claves del problema. Un encantador cachorro expuesto para la venta puede propiciar su adquisición por parte de personas que no conocían las necesidades reales del animal, ni el trabajo y los gastos que ocasiona su mantenimiento, tal vez alguno de los miembros de la familia no ha estado de acuerdo con su llegada a casa; todos estos factores suelen terminar de forma dramática para el pobre animal.

One in four dogs 'suffering depression'

A quarter of Britain's dogs are suffering from depression because of the stress of being left alone while their owners are at work, a new study has found.
Animals whose owners work particularly long hours or have just returned to work display particularly visible signs of distress – including pacing, spinning on the spot, howling, defecating and even self-harming.
A spokesman for Home Alone Dogs, a documentary to be shown on Channel 4 later this year, told the Daily Mail: "For some dogs the consequences can be shocking, including pacing and spinning on the spot.
"Others were seen barking and howling for long periods, defecating and even self-harming."
Dr John Bradshaw explained if dogs are trained to interact with humans, they can then find it difficult when they don't have that interaction during the working day.
He explained: "Dogs have a very powerful link to humans. You can train a dog to do all sorts of things and understand our gestures.

'Shocking' pig cruelty condemned at Norfolk farm

An RSPCA investigation has begun into "shocking" footage of pigs apparently being beaten on a farm in Norfolk.
Animal Equality said it had filmed the animals being kicked, slapped and attacked with iron bars at Harling Farm, in East Harling, near Norwich.
The RSPCA said the footage was "some of the most shocking we have ever received".
Stephen Brown, who runs the farm, said it was co-operating with investigators.
"We are horrified to learn what has allegedly happened and have dealt with the staff involved appropriately," he said.
...Animal rights organisation Animal Equality said the investigation "marks the beginning of an intensive campaign" to expose the "true face of animal farming in Britain". "It provides a stark contrast to the pig industry's celebrity-endorsed 'Love Pork' marketing campaign," said a spokeswoman.
"The shocking revelations of the investigation have been submitted to the relevant authorities."
It said the footage was filmed by an undercover reporter between 27 July and 30 September last year.
The farm had been approved by the Red Tractor food quality assurance scheme, which aims to ensure "responsible farming methods".

It is just like man's vanity and impertinence to call an animal dumb because it is dumb to his dull perceptions. Heaven is by favor; if it were by merit your dog would go in and you would stay out. Of all the creatures ever made he (man) is the most detestable. Of the entire brood, he is the only one...that possesses malice. He is the only creature that inflicts pain for sport, knowing it to be pain. The fact that man knows right from wrong proves his intellectual superiority to the other creatures; but the fact that he can do wrong proves his moral inferiority to any creature that cannot.

A healthy dog was euthanised and buried after her owner left specific instructions to have the dog killed and buried with her.
The Shih Tzu mix, called Emma, arrived at an animal shelter in Chesterfield County in Virginia on March 8, following the death of her owner. She remained there for two weeks, before the executor of the dead woman’s estate brought forth the woman’s wish to have her dog killed.
Emma was then taken to a local vet and put down. She has since been cremated, and her remains were placed in an urn in the casket of her dead owner.

Bali tourists are unknowingly eating dog meat, undercover investigation reveals

The dogs are brutally slaughtered to sale like 'chicken' meat

Animal protection organisation Animals Australia recently conducted an investigation into the matter, entitled “Bali's hidden meat trade - and its disturbing connection to Australian tourism.”
They found that every day, dogs - including pets - are being taken off the streets of Bali and killed, often brutally, to be sold as meat to tourists.
“Dumped in bamboo crates or plastic rice sacks, terrified dogs await the nightly slaughter with legs tied and mouths taped shut,” Animals Australia say. 
“They may languish like this for hours or days without food or water. One by one they will be brutally slaughtered in full view of their companions.
“And business is booming. Year on year, seven times more dogs are slaughtered in Bali than in China’s notorious Yulin Dog Eating Festival.”

However chunky survived and defied all odds. Please give chunky the justice he deserves. What I'm asking for is that anyone who abuses animals, regardless of their age should never be allowed to own an animal again. These offenders should then be placed on a Animal Cruelty Register, which would follow them around for life. Animal abuse is serious, and the laws must change. The teens who committed this atrocity, were banned from keeping animals for five years. This is not sufficient, our legal system should ban these kids or anyone who commits crimes against animals from owning animals ever again!! Please sign this petition to help dogs like Chunky...[+]
