Grumpy crocodile jailed for three days
Police threw a grumpy crocodile in jail after it was discovered loitering in a town.
The two-metre long saltwater crocodile was hanging around by a fence trying to look innocent, officers in Australia's Northern Territory said.
Sergeant Adam Russell said his plan to nab the reptile in style was vetoed by rangers.
"I wanted to jump on it Steve Irwin style," he told Northern Territory News.
"But [the rangers] wouldn't let me."
Instead the creature was bound and bundled into the back of a pick-up truck and taken to the police cells.
It was remanded in custody for three days until it was picked up by staff from a crocodile farm.
Sgt Russell said the reptile was hosed down every couple of hours in its cell but would hiss whenever anybody came near.
…………..He was probably pissed about the drink regulation at the race track……
