Indonesia: Crocodile Killed After Eating Teenager



Disturbing news item from Indonesia. Several species of crocodile live in this area, but the likely predator here is the saltwater croc. 

Crocodile Killed After Eating Teenager | The Jakarta Globe:

"After killing the crocodile, people cut open its belly and found pieces of 14-year-old Rio Candra’s body.


“Parents now forbid their children from taking a bath in the river to prevent them from being eaten by a crocodile,” Syafullah said.


Rio was with his father, Syahrudin, looking for mangrove wood on the Merusi river when the crocodile attacked and dragged him into the water. His father, who witnessed the incident, could not do anything."

Thanks to Croconut for the news tip.
