Angry man fights off crocodile with frying pan in Australia
An angry man beat the hell out of a rampaging crocodile with a frying pan in the Northern Territory of Australia.
The brave man has been identified as Kai Hansen.
Hansen said the wild beast needed a “good lesson,” according to Daily Mail.
Hansen runs a pub at the Goat Island lodge and said the area needed to be safe for tourists and adventure seekers.
The wild video shows a crocodile charging towards Hansen who refused to back down.
The video shows Hansen carrying a frying pan and standing his ground.
As soon as the crocodile came at an arm's length, the rugged outdoorsman hit the snout of the reptile twice, making the animal retreat back to the water.
The video of the Hansen-croc confrontation has been doing the rounds on social media platforms.
A close video showed the advancing crocodile opened its jaws but Hansen used the humble utensil to save himself.
According to the Daily Mail, “No one got hurt and the reptile got a good lesson…”
Hansen told media that few years back a 3- metre beast came out of the water and ate his dog, Dumb Blonde.
Hansen is not scared. He said went down to the river to make sure the path was safe for visitors.
Hansen’s bravery has been praised by netizens, who said he took unnecessary risk.
Some Twitter users shared hilarious comments.

Australia has a large population of crocodiles but as the research noted, there are only an average of 1.9 attacks a year.
In 2017, data from the government estimated there was roughly one attack every year in a 33-year period, starting from 1985.
