A 50 year old amature golfer had a fun old time when his ball landed in a water hazord.

Bruce Burger was trying to retrieve his ball from a pond on the 6th when an one eyed alligotor came out of the water, grabbing Burgers tasty right arm and pulled him in.

The man used his free arm to beat the reptile in the head and was eventually freed. He was taken to hospital with minor wounds.

 “I saw him reach down to get his ball and he yelled” for help, said Janet Pallo, who was playing the fifth hole and ran over to drive the man to the clubhouse.

The pond at the sixth hole has a “Beware of Alligator” sign.

“Unfortunately, that’s part of Florida,” course general manager Rod Parry said. “There’s wildlife in these ponds.”

Talk about your water hazard.

Does this remind you of a certain one eyed alligator in the film Happy Gilmore?

Idiocy or Intelligence? Croc man goes boldly where no man should ever.

It’s unlikely that anybody will copy the Crocodile Hunter, but Steve Irwin would surely approve of Dr Brady Barr — he impersonates crocodiles.

The renowned National Geographic reptile researcher has developed a unique crocodile-shaped protective suit that allows him to get right next to the fearsome beasts in the wild.

As an added defence, Dr Barr smears himself with animal dung to mask his humour odour.

While it lacks the function of Roger Moore’s floating suit in the James Bond film ‘Octopussy’, the croc suit proved effective in letting Dr Barr get right next to some endangered Nile crocodiles in Egypt.

And this croc-man is no newcomer to the animal communing game: he’s been getting to know all manner of wild beasts for the past 15 years, and seeks out the poison of the black mamba snake and the ‘bite force’ of several of the planet’s most frightening predators as part of his latest mission.
