Morons provoke crocodiles, kid gets eaten

Natural selection. Seriously, does anyone who would beat and provoke crocodiles deserve to be procreating? I submit to you the answer is NO.

CNN
A crocodile shot to death in south China during a search for a missing 9-year-old student was found to contain the child's remains[...]

[...]"The children shot the animals with catapults and beat them with wooden sticks," the agency said. "One of the irritated crocodiles bit Liu's clothes and dragged him into water, where he was eaten by a swarm of crocodiles."[...]

And at 9 years old, he is old enough to know that a crocodile is far too dangerous to be messing around with like that. Cause and effect can be a real bitch.

Sounds like a spoiled brat met his match! There are 3 little boys next door who have tormented my across the street neighbors 2 very nice dogs, I would probably look the other way if those 2 dogs chased the brats! I'm a firm believer that under certain circumstances, with certain people, pain is an excellent teacher! Cures stupidity, one way or another!

The first person who makes a joke about food poisoning should get banned.
