Man tries to ride crocodile

Posted:

AUSTRALIA (KWWL) -- A cautionary tale about the dangers of alcohol.

A 36-year-old man was on vacation in Broome in north western Australia.

He got drunk at a bar on July 11 and was asked to leave by the staff.

That's when he left and climbed a fence to get to this 18-foot saltwater crocodile at a crocodile park and decided to try to ride it.

"Fatso" the crocodile attacked the man, and he sustained lacerations to his leg.

The man says he just wanted to pet the crocodile.
