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 after the boy jumped a security fence at the Alice Springs Reptile Center in central Australia, said zoo director Rex Neindorf.

Little monsters into big ones do grow. Is this kid's nickname Damien?

Where were his parents? Or were they just glad to get rid of him for a half hour. This kid needs to be in a padded room with 24/7 men in white coats. Imagine what he’ll be killing when he’s older.

I’d say therapy first, from what I’ve heard about juvie he’s likely only going to come out with more bad ideas and criminal tendencies than he went in with. Not that there aren’t kids who ought to be in juvie, but this one is young enough that maybe there’s still some hope of straightening him out...

Maybe he just really likes crocs and wants to make them happy.

So, if that is true, are you saying it’s ok what he did?

I was actually just joking, since I don't think that was his motivation. He's a screwed up kid, and the fact that he's seven is astonishing.

That said, when it's time to feed a croc, something's gotta die to do it. I'd bet the chicken community was happy to turn the duty over to the lizard community for one night only.
