SYDNEY, Australia (Oct. 3) - A 7-year-old boy broke into a popular Outback zoo, fed a string of animals to the resident crocodile and bashed several lizards to death with a rock, the zoo's director said Friday.
The 30-minute rampage, caught on the zoo's security camera, happened early Wednesday after the boy jumped a security fence at the Alice Springs Reptile Center in central Australia, said zoo director Rex Neindorf.

The child then went on a killing spree, bashing three lizards to death with a rock, including the zoo's beloved, 20-year-old goanna, which he then fed to "Terry," an 11-foot, 440-pound saltwater crocodile, said Neindorf.
The boy also fed several live animals to Terry by throwing them over the two fences surrounding the crocodile's enclosure, at one point climbing over the outer fence to get closer to the giant reptile.

In the footage, the boy's face remains largely blank, Neindorf said, adding: "It was like he was playing a game."

By the time he was done, 13 animals worth around $5,500 had been killed, including a turtle, bearded dragons and thorny devil lizards, Neindorf said. Although none were considered rare, some are difficult to replace, he said.

"We're horrified that anyone can do this and saddened by the age of the
child," Neindorf said.

Alice Springs police said they are unable to press charges against the boy because of his age. Children under age 10 can't be charged with criminal offenses in the Northern Territory. His name was not released because of his age.

Neindorf said he plans to sue the boy's parents.

The boy's small size is probably the reason he didn't trip the zoo's security system, which relies on sensors to detect intruders, Neindorf said.

"I just want people to learn that they can't let their children go and run amok," Neindorf said. "If we can't put the blame onto the child, then someone has to accept the responsibility."

Geez!! This kid needs some serious counceling!!

Damn, that's brilliant. I would never have thought of using someone of small stature to get past sensors, yet this boy managed to put such a plan into action successfully in order to complete a multiple-target assassination. Spec ops recruiters better keep an eye on this kid.

i saw we throw the kid to the crocodile
at least I would do that
is karma

10-08-2008, 08:43 PM
thats not the best idea. the boy may just kill the croc. hes already shown ridiculously good ninja skills by sneaking into a zoo, do we really want to punish the croc

10-16-2008, 09:33 PM
that's messed up. hope the brat gets punished or goes to counciling or something, it's said that most serial killers get used to killing by killing small animals at a young age.

10-16-2008, 09:39 PM
well thats a joke. i would kill the little devil for hurtin all the animals...so kinda give him a taste of his own medicine, haha.

Sasuke is awsome

Who would want to kill animals. That kid needs counsling.

10-16-2008, 11:37 PM
This kid is fukkd up and needs help. And it is 100% his responsibilite, if it was possible I would press charges against him. Not that I care about the animals, it's just so incredibly fukkd up.

We should feed the little bastard to the croc. That's all I'm saying. What's happening to the future generation?
