A 44-year-old scientist identified as Deasy Tuwo was feeding the crocidiles at the Yosiki Laboratory where she worked when she was dragged into the pool by Merry, a croc over 5 meters (over 16 feet) in length. Several hours later other scientists came and saw the woman in the pool, still in the jaws of the animal. But it was too late. Deasy’s arm had been ripped off by the powerful predator and it was in the process of devouring her.
Merry had attacked other crocs in the past but the scientists never had any belief that he would attack people. They speculate that the animal reared on it’s hind legs and lunged over the short barrier at the food in Deasy’s hands. An assortment of tuna, chicken and other fresh meats and it’s likely just an unfortunate accident that he grabbed a hold of her.
Surprisingly, Merry the Croc was not killed. He was secured and taken to an animal rehab facility where I guess they’ll start him on a vegetarian diet lol. But I gotta give the Indonesians props. American snowflakes would have not only killed Merry but every animal in the facility for good measure.
