[url=http://www.cnn.com/2002/WORLD/asiapcf/southeast/08/11/thailand.crocodile.reut/index.html]suicide by croc....[/url] Crocodiles tear apart Thai suicide woman August 11, 2002 Posted: 3:10 AM EDT (0710 GMT) BANGKOK, Thailand (Reuters) -- A Thai woman killed herself by jumping into a pit of more than 100 crocodiles, shocking crowds of onlookers at a Bangkok reptile farm. The woman, 40, climbed a two-meter high fence and jumped into a concrete enclosure at the Famut Prakarn Crocodile Farm on the outskirts of the Thai capital, a tour guide who witnessed the event said Sunday. A crocodile dragged the woman into a pond and several animals swarmed over and tore her body apart. "She did not cry or scream when she was bitten," Tanet Virayaporn, the tour guide, told Reuters. "It happened so quickly. Nobody could do anything." Police said the woman had left a suicide note in which she complained about her husband and apologized to family members. Hundreds of people were visiting the crocodile farm, a popular tourist attraction, when the woman committed suicide. ouch.[whacko]

Yikes! I know she was female but it took some SERIOUS cajones to do suicide by croc. I've seen lots of gators, never crocs tho-crocs are supposedly [b]MUCH[/b] more aggressive, eat lots of different things. Things like fish and small birds go down whole. Animals too large to go down whole, like mud ducks and dogs (alligators love dog above all other things and can smell them from a [b]long[/b] way) get clamped and rolled till drowned. Then Wally-gator will rip the carcas into bits, tearing off and swallowing huge chunks-o-flesh. NOT a way I would choose to off myself. Notes of interest- The strength of an alligator's jaw when closing is roughly 2000 lbs of pressure. The common belief that you can outrun an alligator by running in diagonal lines is a [b]MYTH!![/b] - alligators are just plain FAST. 20-30 MPH, compared to your top speed of 12-15 MPH. Luckily they are also very LAZY[red] ask anti about lazy gators [/red] ;). This myth is based on the fact that an alligator has no peripheral vision, so it isn’t very difficult to get out of their FOV. A close relative of the lizard, an alligator can climb just as well. A 6-foot chain link fence is no obstacle for a small gator Most alligator attacks occur only when they feel threatened (Mama Gator is very protective of her young) or when they are surprised, normally by being stepped on in murky water. edit for spelling

A little extreme, but apparently an effective method of population control..... I think if I was the husband that I'd send the reptile farm a bill for providing feed though.

See what happens when you don't register crocs!

This is what happens in a country with without guns. The citizens have to come up with crazy ways to get the job done. By the way I'm being facetious[;)]

back in high school i always thought a cool way to go would be to stand up in a crowded classroom during a teachers talk and using my arms, break my own neck would that be possible?

This lady was obviously a liberal....she took the "green" way to comitting suicide. Why pollute the ground with embalming fluid or the air with your ashes when you can just feed a croc, fertalize a tree and kill yourself in one fail swoop [:)]

I never really knew how big Nile crocs get, Then one night I was watching the discovery ch. and i saw this whole heard of Zebras,they were crossing a river and a croc grabbed one of them in mid air,i thought shit why were a whole heard of baby Zebras doing bunched up together like that ? Then i understood as a real baby Zebra was taken by one of the crocs,it was half the size as the others and the adult Zebra looked small in the crocs jaws,man those things are friggin huge and scary.
