Authorities in Australia are scrambling to find a 12-year-old boy who was carried off by a crocodile after an attack!
The boy and a 15-year-old friend were out around Mudginberri in the Northern Territory's Kakadu National Park.
The older kid eventually broke free but the croc quickly turned on the 12-year-old and easily carried him off.
Afterwards, docs examined the bite marks on the surviving boy's arm and determined the croc was probably around 8-9 feet!
Now authorities in the area have a kill order on any crocs six feet or longer!
They've already killed and cut open two crocs looking for human remains, but nothing so far.
Every moment this child is missing, the odds for his survival get worse.
We hope for nothing but the best.
