Croc Update (Alcohol Was Involved Edition)

Drunk Broome man's crocodile ride ends in surgery | Herald Sun: "A DRUNK man climbed into a crocodile enclosure at a wildlife park after being kicked out of his local pub and is lucky to be alive to tell the tale.

The ABC reports Broome Police Sergeant Roger Haynes as saying the 36-year-old was bitten on the leg before escaping.

'For some reason he's made a decision to climb the fence into the crocodile park, where an almost five-metre male crocodile was living,' he told the ABC.

'He appears to have wanted to touch that crocodile and sit on its back, and the crocodile has taken offence to that and bitten him on the right leg."

Coming soon to a movie theater near you: Drunk Man's Crocodile Ride (starring Mel Gibson, with Nicolas Cage as the croc).
