A wild moment of an old man is repulsed by a mammoth that charges a crocodile with a frying pan in an iconic pub of the Northern Territory
The fearless owner of the pub fought off the angry crocodile, hitting him on the head with a frying pan.
A wild moment was filmed on camera at a Goat Island lodge in the Northern Territory when Kai Hansen refused to back down from a charged 2.5-meter reptile.
Two blows to the nose are enough to make the resentful crocodile turn around and head back into the water.
“I wouldn’t say it’s a daily event, but I have to stay safe and do my best,” Mr Hansen told the Daily Mail Australia on Tuesday.
“No one was hurt, and the crocodile learned a good lesson.”
The confrontation began when the beast got too close to the people in the iconic place.
He went down to the river to make sure the path was safe for visitors, armed with a pot with a heavy bottom.
This is not Mr. Hansen’s first encounter with a salty charger.
Back in 2018, his domestic dog Dumb Blond ate a three-foot beast on the Adelaide River.
Despite the grief and danger posed by the animals, Hansen said he was not afraid.
“If you’re driving a car and suddenly in front of you is a dog, you’re afraid no, you’re just doing what you have to do,” he said.
“You just work by instinct.”
