Michael Newman says he was tossed out of Diver's Tavern and took off for the zoo. He climbed into an area where a croc named Fatso lives, and the animal wasn't thrilled with his visitor.
Newman says he was only trying to pet him when the croc decided to take a chunk out of his leg. Eventually, the crocodile let him go.
"It got my leg and went for my leg. I thought, 'I'm in trouble here. I'm not coming out of here,'" he said.
Newman was able to return to the pub after the attack for help. He admits that trying to pet a crocodile while under the influence isn't the best idea.
