Keywords That Make You Go Hmm

When someone sends you a link that contains the words “Police Drunk Australian Bitten Fatso Crocodile Trying Sit Animals” well, you just can’t not look at it!

PERTH, Australia (AP) — A man ejected from a pub in Australia broke into a zoo and climbed onto the back of a crocodile named Fatso, which bit him on the leg but then let him go. Police say they’re surprised the croc didn’t inflict worse damage.

The 36-year-old man, who police said had just been thrown out of a pub for being drunk, told officials he scaled the barbed wire fence surrounding the Broome Crocodile Park in remote northwest Australia on Monday night because he wanted to give the 16-foot (5 meter) Fatso a pat.

“He has attempted to sit on its back and the croc has taken offense to that and has spun around and bit him on the right leg,” Broome Police Sgt. Roger Haynes said.

The saltwater crocodile then inexplicably let the man go, and he climbed back over the fence to safety, police said.

The moral of the story? Don’t get trashed next to a zoo.

    Res, that was one of my first thoughts. It had me thinking “What the heck is Jamie doing over here in the north of WA?? Heh..

    Most of the towns up north have something of a rep for heavy drinking – not much else to do!
