A crocodile called Terry.

A 7-year-old Australian boy has been caught on CCTV breaking into a zoo and feeding small animals to the zoo’s crocodile, Terry. A news report from reuters, and some tv news reports below:

My initial thought was that this was a funny odd story – after all, crocodiles eat meat -right? HOw different is this to feeding chicken to a cat? And the croc has a funny name.

However, thie difference is this. the boy seemed to take delight in killing (the report decribes him as ‘bludgeoning’) some of the small animals before he fed them to Terry. It is not out of necessity for him or for the crocodile, which, I presume, was well fed by the zoo. And the boy killed some endangered species. The zoo’s staff don’t seem to be pleased.
