    Boy, 7, breaks into zoo, feeds animals to croc

    Boy, 7, breaks into zoo, feeds animals to croc

    This is so very sad. I just can't imagine what was going through the child's head or how the parents feel right now.

    This is such a tragedy.

    That is frightening. What must have been going through that child's mind? He is too young to be charged, but someone needs to keep a very close eye on him. What or who will be next? Where were the parents? He is so young to even be thinking about something so cruel.

    So horribly sad. Obviously this child is very very sick.

    Now that they've identified him so young, I hope they get him the help he needs, putting him in a hospital if necessary until they see if he's able to control himself.

    I hope to God this is not a result of a reaction to abuse from his parents.

    Let's all keep this child in our prayers.

    This is a seven year old? How the heck could a little kid be missing for that long let alone doing something so cruel?

    The article read the security system probably didn't trip due to his small size. Where were his parents?

    His parents should be made to reimburse the zoo and they probably need some parenting classes. Maybe if more adults were held responsible for the actions of their minor children people would keep an eye on their marauding monsters.

    Animal cruelty makes me angry.
    People neglecting their kids makes me angrier.

    This behavior points at sociopathy in my honest opinion. The cruelty that this little boy exhibited is frightening and I agree with others who said that it is a good thing that he's been detected at such an early age. If let unchecked, I doubt this'll be the last we hear of this little boy.

    I agree. This child needs serious help. If the parents don't step up and really parent, I have no doubt this child will grow into a monster. Those poor animals!

    Is there help for a kid who is already displaying these types of deep-seated problems? I mean, really, and I'm not saying it applies to this kid, but some people are just evil, I think. If a kid is already killing helpless animals at such a young age, will all the therapy in the world keep him from killing as an adult?

    I think that he has gone beyond that. I am thinking psychopath. Hopefully, his parents will get him the help he needs. He is only 7. I pray that there is hope for him!

    This story scared me. I have four kids and have known many 7 year old boys. Seven is the sweetest age. I cant imagine what horrible problems this child has. I hope he gets help. I really hope his parents are scared to death by his behaviour and do whatever they can for him.
