Animal abuser & killer in the making

What a sad boy, and even sadder parents:

A blank-faced 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 boy jumped a security fence at the Alice Springs Reptile Center in central Australia early Wednesday, then went on a 30-minute killing spree, using a rock to slay three lizards, including the zoo's beloved, 20-year-old goanna, which he then fed to "Terry," an 11-foot (3.3 meter), 440-pound (200 kilogram) saltwater crocodile, said zoo director Rex Neindorf.
