A seven-year-old boy broke into an Australian zoo and fed various animals to a crocodile.
The boy also beat an assortment of lizards to death with a large rock, some of which he fed to the croc.‚ The boy, who jumped the security fence at the Outback zoo to commit the crime, killed 13 animals in total including a turtle and bearded dragons.
The crocodile’s name was Terry.
“It’s unbelievable. In my day he’d get a big boot up the arse,” zoo center director Rex Neindorf told Reuters.
A big boot indeed.‚ No word yet on the mental condition of this child.
Some of the animals are apparently quite hard to replace and valued at over $5000.
The parents of the child could possibly be sued by the zoo.
