7-year-old Australian boy feeds animals to crocodile

Surveillance video shows a 7-year-old Australian boy throwing live animals into the Outback Zoo's crocodile pen at the Alice Springs Reptile Center in central Australia.

A 7-year-old boy jumped the fence at an Australian zoo and served its resident 440-pound, 11-foot saltwater carnivore crocodile also known as Terry with a variety of live and dead creatures culled from the zoo population.

In the 30-minute rampage 13 animals worth around $5,500 had been killed, including a turtle, bearded dragons and thorny devil lizards. Although none were considered rare, some are difficult to replace. The zoo's beloved, 20-year-old goanna monitor lizard were beaten to death with a rock.

zoo director Rex Neindorf plans to sue the boy's parents added that the nasty 7-year-old comes from a family that's got a history of violence, and he's continued on with it and nothing can be done because he's seven. The child's diminutive size allowed him to slip past the zoo's security system, which uses sensors to detect intruders.
