As a first step,I would want the statutory agencies,to be checking whether this boy is being abused..if everything at home is as it should be,then i'll call him a shit..but at the moment,I cant help thinking that he might be disturbed,and is reenacting abusive behaviour he has seen /experienced,albeit in an exaggerated fashion.This boy ain't right,that much oes without saying,but kids don't usually just become monsters out of nowhere..

This is a despicable act of cruelty, but what is worrying and what the authorities should do is now moniter the child, this behaviour shows a serious personality disorder. He will go on and do worse things to animals, and humans, he obviously has a sadistic streak which at the age of 7 will stay with him.I am really disturbed by this story, thank you Jacqueline for posting it.

WOW. 7 years old. full responsibility for this child should be to the parents. for a child to feel no sense of remorse, and compassion towards animals, and to knowingly THROW animals over a fence to feed to the crocodile, and smash defenseless animals with a rock, shows (to me), a deep rooted disturbance within. egads...what a crying shame in one so young, to be so vile, and cruel. parents need to go to prison, (where were THEY went he went on his rampage??!!), and counseling for the 7 y.o. what a sad story. thanks for this post.

Disgusting brat! I dislike children as it is, this one deserves to have done to him what he did to his animal victims!

Current mood: enraged!

I saw this dispicable act on the News. Both my husband and I were shocked into silence for a moment. Where does a child learn such cruelty? He should be put away into some institution and the Parents held responsible and severely punished. I dislike kids as it is and this reinforces the validity of my dislike for those brats. This kid is not the first one who perpetrated such a horrific act on defenseless animals either in Australia and other parts of the world. I ask again: HOW AND WHERE DO THEY LEARN SUCH EVIL"
