    Australian drunk survives attempt to ride crocodile

    A drunk man who climbed into a crocodile enclosure in Australia and attempted to ride a 5m (16ft) long crocodile has survived his encounter.

    The crocodile, called Fatso, bit the 36-year-old man's leg, tearing chunks of flesh from him as he straddled the reptile.

    He received surgery to serious wounds to his leg and is recovering in hospital, police say.

    He had been chucked out of a pub in the town of Broome for being too drunk.

    The man, Michael Newman, climbed over a fence and tried to sit on the 800kg (1,800lb) saltwater crocodile.

    "Fatso has taken offence to this and has spun around and bit this man on the right leg," Sgt Roger Haynes of Broome police told journalists.

    "The crocodile has let him go and he's been able to scale the fence again and leave the wildlife park."

    What a dumbass. :tsktsk:
