Komodo Dragon Mauls, Kills Boy, 8, in Indonesia
A Komodo dragon attacked and killed an 8-year-old boy in eastern Indonesia, the first recorded deadly attack on a human by one of the giant lizards in 33 years, a national park spokesman said Monday.
The boy was mauled when he went to defecate behind a bush Saturday on Komodo island, Heru Rudiharto said.
"The Komodo bit him on his waist and tossed him viciously from side to side," Rudiharto said
What a coincidence; some station just aired The Freshman this weekend. If you haven't seen it, Matthew Broderick has his hands full trying to deal with a Komodo Dragon and Marlon Brando at the same time. It was a cute movie, check it out.
This attack, on the other hand, is absolutely gruesome. Take this spot off the list of ideas on where to hold a Boy Scout Camporee. The list of AKJ events continues to pile up, and they're getting stranger as I go along. Kinkajous, muskies, and now Komodo Dragons. What's next?
