Crocodiles Let Loose In Australian School By Vandals
The young men were captured on CCTV smashing through a glass door at Taminmin College in Humpty Doo, 20 miles south of Darwin, early on a Sunday morning.
The suspects, whose heads were covered with scarves, then dumped the reptiles one by one in the main office.
In the footage, the men were seen ransacking the room, including throwing a computer screen on the floor, and about 30 seconds later ran off.
CCTV shows four men breaking into the school and dumping three crocodiles up to 6.5ft long.
Ranger Luke McLaren told ABC local radio the reptiles, which measured up to 2m (6.5ft) long, were in a poor condition.
It is believed the crocodiles came from a crocodile farm, he said.
“We’ll determine what farm they’re from and we’ll try to take them back to that farm but looking at their condition it’s likely they’ll have to be destroyed,” Mr McLaren added.
Senior Constable David Gregory said: “The ranger that turned up was very concerned for them – they had their mouths taped up.
Strange Vandal Psychology!
It is very difficult to understand the psychology of vandals! What was their motive to trap poor crocodiles and leave them in a closed enclosure…when they actually thrive on water! Is it cheap publicity…or want of scandal or revenge!? Difficult to say! It will only be revealed after the thugs are caught and brought to justice!
