In China curiosity, it seems, killed not only the cat, but also the crocodile.
Several hibernating crocodiles in a Shenzhen park were killed by curious tourists who attacked them with stones , the Shenzhen Evening News reported on Thursday.
The tourists were intrigued at the sight of motionless crocodiles and thought they were dead, said a park staffer. Some threw stones and empty bottles at them. Several crocodiles were killed.
“Some tourists are very fond of throwing things at crocodiles,” said a frustrated staffer, “they’ve thrown bottles, garbages, stones, and sticks.”
The story triggered heated discussions on Sina Weibo, China’s twitter-like service, where angry netizens lashed out at the attackers.
“What is the problem with our education?” asked a netizen. "And why isn't the park stopping this?"
“I don’t want to be a crocodile in China,” said a netizen .
Update: According to a report by Shenzhen-based Baoan Daily on Friday, the park denied any crocodiles had been killed, claiming it's a false statement made by an overworked staffer.
