First the story. A chap decided to get himself thoroughly refreshed at the local tavern, not far from the crocodile farm.
For a rather vague reason he then decided to climb the fence then try and get on a 5m long crocs back.
Croc got a little grumpy and gave the blokes leg a bit of a nibble.
What kind of man could perform such a deed?
Heres a few more facts.
Mr Newman, who was dubbed Crocodile Dumb-dee in The West Australian newspaper on Wednesday, had earlier been turfed out of a Broome tavern for being drunk.
He made his way back to the tavern after the attack and even had a beer before being taken to hospital.
Now a confession.
I too have been massively refreshed at the same pub a few years back, I wasnt kicked out but wobbled out at closing time.
I was staying at a resort nearby, and the walk took me around the back of the crocodile farm, part the way around I decided to sit down for a rest and dozed off….
I woke the next morning with a blue heeler licking my face through the fence, If Id wobbled another dozen of so meters It would have been a croc having a lick…..
Not my finest hour…
Pubs and croc farms should be well separated.
