Zimbabwe villagers cut open huge crocodile -- and find 8-year-old boy inside

A crocodile was shot dead after villagers suspected that it had eaten an 8-year-old in Zimbabwe's Mashonaland Central Province.

Their fears were confirmed when they cut open the enormous reptile's body to find the horrific remains of the child in the crocodile's stomach, reports the Mirror via Unilad.

The incident was caught on camera by an eyewitness showing a couple of villagers dissecting the creature and removing the boy's remains.

The child was given a proper funeral and buried in the village two days after the crocodile was shot.
