When humans become too close to wild animals, these animals lose their natural fear of people and see them as a source of for food. This makes them even more dangerous than usual.
In the village of Mushumbi Pools in northern Zimbabwe’s Mashonaland Central Province, a massive crocodile was found and was killed. But as they cut open the crocodile’s belly, the villagers found something shocking. Apparently, the crocodile had swallowed a young boy whole.
They film as some of the villagers pull out parts of the boy from inside the croc’s belly. The remains were then laid on a grey blanket beside the dead animal. Villagers and a local policeman can be seen silently watching the grim operation in the background.
The boy, whose name has not been revealed, was removed from the crocodile and buried two days later in a village funeral.
