Four crocodiles in a zoo in Wuhan were killed by visitors over five years, Wuhan Evening News reported.

The crocodiles were killed by visitors throwing stones at them for sport, zookeeper Xu Shilian said.

The zoo, built in 2008, had eight crocodiles. Tighter supervision of visitors has been imposed and zoo authorities are instructing visitors on the importance of proper behavior.
