Video shows boy's zoo havoc

October 04, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A 7-year-old boy broke into a popular outback zoo, fed animals to the resident crocodile and bashed several lizards to death with a rock, the zoo's director said.

The 30-minute rampage, caught on the zoo's security camera this week, happened after the boy jumped a security fence at the Alice Springs Reptile Center in central Australia, zoo director Rex Neindorf said.

Authorities said they could not press charges against the boy because of his age.
