Crocodile Eats 5-Year-Old Boy - Parents Want Animal Spared


planetsave.com

The parents of a 5-year-old Australian boy who was eaten by a 14-foot-long crocodile have asked authorities not to euthanize the animal, presumably recognizing that the crocodile was merely protecting its river home from an intruder.

Jeremy Doble was last seen on 8 February playing near his family's home beside a flooded mangrove swamp in northern Queensland.

Crocodiles are protected animals in Australia. They often confront people and pets living near their habitat, and even on beaches!



The remains of a five-year-old Australian boy have been found in the stomach of a crocodile, police say. His parents, owners of a crocodile sight-seeing business do not want the croc harmed or the body removed!

The parents of a 5-year-old Australian boy who was eaten by a 14-foot-long crocodile have asked authorities not to euthanize the animal, presumably recognizing that the crocodile was merely protecting its river home from an intruder.

Jeremy Doble was last seen on 8 February playing near his family's home beside a flooded mangrove swamp in northern Queensland.

Police now say he was attacked and eaten by a 14ft (4.3m) crocodile who was then trapped in a flooded river.

The announcement came after police examined the crocodile, using non-lethal surgical procedure.

"The family have requested that media respect their privacy at this time," police said in a statement.

Queensland officials say the animal will now be sent to a crocodile farm or zoo.

The victim's parents have reportedly asked authorities not to kill the crocodile.

Shocking. They should have ripped the thing's belly open. Perhaps the boy might have been swallowed alive. At the very least, get his body out in the best condition possible for proper burial.

Protecting its territory? Poor alligator.

They are crawling all over Florida too, including in the fresh water lakes and ponds and swimming pools. They eat people's pets, and people cannot enjoy boating and fishing, or even feel safe in their homes with these man-eating creatures lurking around.

It's like that in India also. I saw a documentary on TV back when I used to watch TV (I don't anymore) of how the Indian women wash their clothes in this river full of alligators and have to keep an eye out, and one lady said her husband got dragged into the water and eaten by one.

This is what you get when the population is taught:

1. reincarnation, that life is worthless, that a bug's life is as valuable as a human's, because we could come back as a bug or a bug could come back as a human.

2. atheism -- that we are just creatures evolved from the slime, there is no hope, no future, that we are all just animals looking for some food to eat.

It turns people into barbarians and destroys civilization. THis is what is happening. Why is it happening? Because the Satanists who own the world and the media and the culture are feeding a steady diet of their mind control into the matrix.

We must wake up before it's too late. That's all we have to do -- jsut wake up. No violent revolution, just people snapping out of their stupor and mind control will take care of the problem all by itself.

Spread the word. The life you save may be your own.

This is genuinely refreshing to read. I get tired of hearing how humans encroach more and more into the natural habitat of wild animals but then get indignant when it blows up in their face.

It's nice to see people - people who have suffered a genuine tragedy as well - actually acknowledge this rather than demand that the 'terror croc rampage' be put to a halt and the 'killer beast' hunted down and killed.

wtf are you blaming reincarnation for ??

Reincarnation is payment for karma , it is related to karma , or that bug life= human life , human have individual souls, while animals have group souls ,

Read the Vedas , rather than saying BS.

I am an indian and in which year was this doumentary made ?? I will verify it

It is "refreshing" and "nice" to read that people whose five year old child was eaten alive by a crocodile prefer the crocodile to their own child?

I wonder if you would speak that way if you were the one being eaten alive. Do you think we should start throwing humans to the crocs like they did in Egypt? Maybe start up the blood sports like they had in Rome, start feeding some of these overpopulated humans to the animals?

Maybe some more five-year-old little boys?

Poor little kid to have such evil parents who love crocodiles and care nothing at all for their own child, not even enough to remove his poor body from the alligator (or croc, whatever, same ugly, vicious animal) and give it a proper burial.

BTW, if every single crocodile and alligator on the face of the earth were to disappear this instant, the world would go on just fine.

AHHHHH I Love the smell of Human Stupidity in the morning.


Sorry to the Eco Cult... I believe we should kill off useless creatures or at least to the 90% level...

Okay, things that eat people are # 1 on the list...

I live in AZ, people want to "protect the desert"

Which is BTW, the only EXPANDING eco system on Earth,

The Rattlesnake does NOT occupy a niche that Life on earth will or will not thrive without, If we "remove" this predator the food chain will not be damaged in anyway that effects very much if anything at all.

It is MORONIC to allow Crocs and Alligators to live near human populations, they are... an ACCIDENT, that survived a great extinction somehow, they have little purpose and while I say keep them in some sanctuaries...

Loose Crocs... is ridiculous in a human dominated world

I say

These 2 parents need to be let loose in a swamp filled with Crocs and pursued by armed hunters with good Rifles, be being Retarded enough to care about an Alligator more than their own son...

At the least Arrested for raising their child on a fracking Croc Farm



Sadest part of this whole Eco Cult Trend...

When these same dummies screw up bad enough that Human civilization takes a few steps back...

I'll have to survive not just in a post acopalyptic scenario

But a post Apocolayptic scenario where, Wolves, Coyotes, Crocs, Bears and who the heck knows what... Big Cats? are Plentiful when I have to forage for food...

Time ever comes where I have to (as I figure is likely) go out and get me a Deer...

It's nice i'll be in competition locally with a few Dozen Wolves, a few Hundred Coyotes, a handful of Mountain Lions and oh yeah.... if I find water to get a drink while being out competed the heck out of by NATURAL BORN KILLING MACHINES

Thanks to these folks, I might just get my head bit off by a 20 ft Croc as well...

They don't eat you alive, they have to crush your bones to swallow you. Yeah, funny thing that most people don't realize that crocs live in the southern us, they are migrating up from the Miami area all over the coast now. They are very aggressive and dangerous, and I have to question why these parents allowed their son to play unsupervised. Most Australians will tell you point blank how dangerous the wildlife is there. Here in Florida it is safe to assume that any body of water outside of a pool has at least one gator in it, I can't believe anybody there would go near the water.

The comment about India reminds me of a video we watched in religion class once about the sacred Ganges River, where people were swimming amongst dead bodies placed there after burning. A couple of swimmers disappeared from the screen in pools of blood. Lo and behold ...the Ganges River bull shark. I don't think any of us will go near a river again! It always blows my mind to go up north and be able to get in water without having to watch out for sharks, gators, barracudas and snakes.

You can't expect anything less from parents who let their child play unsupervised near a crocodile infested swamp.

Don't know about the crocodile, but the parents need sterilizing.
If I was a cop in that town I'd have some serious questions for them.

I have to debate you on that. I live in an area that was heavily infested with snakes. If you have Eastern or Western diamondbacks, they are ridding you of rats and other poisonous snakes. Better to let them be, they don't chase you like coral snakes or spread the plague and other respiratory diseases like vermin.
They also make good watch animals if others know they are there, we had a huge Eastern in our yard and no one ever prowled us while he was alive.

The kid got death-rolled and drowned, probably had a limb torn off in the process. God what a horrible way to go, but Australians should know better than to let their little kids go hang out by a mangrove swamp unsupervised.

That's just what a crocodile does.

Peace

It has to be a terrible time for the kids family, for them to ask the Animal be spared is incredible, but totally understandable.

Humans have always had this policy of killing animals who hurt or kill Humans, it is not and never will be the Animals fault, how could it be? we know the danger these creatures pose to us, yet we go messing with them, and enter places we know they are, then blame them for our ignorance to their animal instinct.

My heart goes out to them, but IMO they made the right choice, what possible good could be achieved by killing it? to the Animal it was feeding, they don't understand what is right and wrong from the Human point of view, it is us Humans who need to learn to understand them not the other way around, after all when was the last time you saw a Crocodile in a pair of Human skin boots?

And no I am not a vegetarian (nothing wrong with being a vegetarian BTW everyone to their own) I eat meat, have eaten lots of things that would make your skin crawl, I wear leather or swede boots, that does not mean I want to kill everything that might make me a profit, or because I got hurt by it.

We have a 7 ft boa constrictor at home, we had two, one bit me last year, we got rid of the one that didn't bite, the reason being, I feel I know the mentality of the one that did now, and will never make the same mistake I did again, yes it was my mistake, not the snakes.

Nature does have a way of exacting her revenge. She's sometimes patient, but often demands immediate gratification.

Can they sterilize ignorant parents Down Under?

The state of Florida has devoted more land to the alligators than to the human population.

And when you go in the Everglades, you aren't allowed to carry a weapon.

And they warn not to bring your dogs because they will get eaten.

Alligators can run FAST.

A friend who used to live in Florida told me there is one road he knew about called Alligator Alley, where if you had a tire blowout or something you should not get out of your car because the alligators would charge out and kill you.

Our beloved Illuminati Satan worshipping government has reintroduced wolves and poison snakes and coyotes and cougars into our parks and then told us they son't hurt us, that if we leave them alone they will leave us alone.

Yeah, right.

Imagine living in Maryland, which is wall to wall people, and even the suburbs are packed like sardines. The Environmental agency introduced cyotes, which breed with the domestic dogs, and now people can't let their kids play in the back yards.

This is insanity.

The pioneers spent a lot of blood sweat and tears to civilize this land, and now we have Satanists who want to herd people into a few cities, into high rises, with grain rations and healthy jogging paths, and are using wild animals introduced in the parks and just in people's back yards to do it with.

When are people going to stand up and say NO.

If we don't snap out of our hypnotic trances soon and wake up they will be coming for us with big trucks to take us away to camps -- or spraying us down with bird flu mixed in with their chemtrail poisons they are already dousing us with.

It's all about DEATH -- Ours.

We can try goddamn it.


What were the parents thinking, I've got a five year old, maybe I'm to protective but theres no way would I let him play near a swamp nevermind one with crocodiles.

The animals on the earth were here before we were. We have encroached on their territory.

It is our responsibility to understand their ways and to share the earth with them.

I have swam in the Atlantic Ocean from Key West Fl., to Canada and the Pacific Ocean from Mexico to Washington State. I can't count the many rivers and lakes I've swam in. I've also done the same in several countries I've worked in.

Apparently, I am a walking miracle as the only thing that ever harmed me while swimming were pathogens I picked up in foreign countries. I must admit that was bad.

Just as fire is hot, there are dangerous creatures`in some bodies of water.
We use caution when playing with fire just as we should use caution playing in an animals habitat.

As far as giving the child a proper burial by killing the croc and removing the body.......well, I would not want to see the remains. A croc does not chew, it crushes it's food and them swallows it as soon as it's the proper size to slide down it's throat.

I hope no one thinks a proper burial is to send a body to a funeral home and have the brains and organs taken out and the body stuffed and filled with embalming fluid.

Then we spend thousands of dollars on a funeral. The entire idea seems barbaric to me.

It would please me if my family could put my dead body on a raft, set it on fire and push it out to sea.

That doesn't even make sense. How are they 'preferring' the crocodile to their own child. Killing the crocodile isn't going to bring the child back or even atone for any negligence on their part. I find the fact that you interpret this some kind of choice pretty bizarre.


I wonder if you would speak that way if you were the one being eaten alive.


If I was being "eaten alive", I doubt I'd be doing any talking. Was that meant to be some kind of joke?


Do you think we should start throwing humans to the crocs like they did in Egypt? Maybe start up the blood sports like they had in Rome, start feeding some of these overpopulated humans to the animals?


That's kind of a leap, isn't it? Why should I think that? How did you extrapolate any of that from my post? Or perhaps this is strawman territory?

Um, no. Crocodiles and alligators are apex predators. By removing them you are going to destroy everything else in the river. There is a reason why they are here on the earth.

How sad. What confuses me the most is how the parents aren't even trying to get the body back. I wouldn't want 'revenge killing' or it to be inhumane but I would want my child's body in order to 1). Get him out of the croc's stomach 2). To give him a proper burial. 3). To have a place I can go to grieve.

It doesn't have to be a vindictive killing to get the body returned. That's nuts to me how the parents will just let him be digested and expelled. Then again, these are parents letting their five year old run around without supervision in a very hostile environment. Just sad. Poor little boy.
