the report I read on it said he had tried to get into the crocodile enclosure himself, but wasn't able to climb over the fense. I hate to admit that my first thought was that that was a bit of a shame. Little shit
Of course I wonder if the parents would have tried to sue the zoo if he had successfully fed himself to a crocodile?
Probably. From the article
"The attack happened on Wednesday morning after the boy entered the zoo by jumping over the security fence and evading sensor alarms
Over the next half hour, he bludgeoned some of the animals to death with stones
and hurled others over the two fences surrounding the crocodile enclosure.
At one point, he tried scaling the outer enclosure himself to get to "Terry", the 11ft (3.3m) saltwater crocodile.
A turtle, four Western blue-tongued lizards, two bearded dragons, two thorny devil lizards and the zoo's 20-year-old goanna were among those killed."
So the kid breaks into the zoo in what appears to be a premeditated fashion, beats some lizards to death with rocks
, and feeds more to a crocodile. In addition to my previous question (where the fuck were the parents?) comes, where was everyone else in the zoo
? I mean, surely someone
was around and witnessed some of this? Security, staff, other zoo-goers? Unfortunately the zoo didn't say anything about whether the park was open or not, just that it happened in the morning.
