Across the U.S., various cities and states are on lockdown orders. Local governments are taking it seriously — the mayor of Los Angeles has even said that power and water will be shut off for “nonessential” businesses that refuse to close. . .
But there’s something worse than seemingly over-eager law enforcement for at least some folks who chose to violate governmental lockdown commands: crocodiles. . .
As cases of COVID-19 in the eastern African country of Rwanda climbed, authorities there implemented a “total lockdown” Sunday, the BBC reported. So far, Rwanda has at least 40 confirmed cases.
The government has reportedly said it would help people struggling under the order, but that has apparently done little for the many poor citizens who were negatively impacted almost immediately.
On Wednesday morning, an unidentified man breached the lockdown to go fishing along the Nyabarongo River, according to the BBC. While he was out at the river, he was killed and eaten by a crocodile. (Read more from “Man Violates Coronavirus Lockdown, Gets Eaten by Crocodile” HERE)
Editor’s note: Let this be a lesson to everyone who thinks the stay-at-home orders are a joke. Actually, you probably have more risk of dying in a car accident after leaving your home than dying from the virus (whose origins shall not be named). So yes, shouldn’t we thank our governing officials for saving lives?
