7 year old breaks into zoo and feeds animals to a crocodile and kills large lizards with a rock.

The Associated Press

SYDNEY, Australia – 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 at the Alice Springs Reptile Centre in central Australia.


Three lizards were bashed to death with a rock, including the zoo's beloved, 20-year-old goanna, which was fed, along with several other live animals, to "Terry," an 11-foot, 440-pound saltwater crocodile.


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


Police say they can't charge the boy because he's under 10, but Mr. Neindorf said he plans to sue the boy's parents for the $5,500 value of the animals killed.

I cannot believe the police say they cannot charge him. What if he killed a person? Could they not charge him then? I think this sounds like a cop-out, pardon the pun. This is a seven year old boy, who broke into a zoo and not only killed animals, but did it in a very disturbing way.

Who else thinks this is something that is so serious that they must charge this boy? He needs psychological help.
