"I'd enjoyed a few beers and it seemed a good idea at the time," said an unnamed angler who recounted to the Northern Territory News a recent misadventure involving a log, a paddle, a lack of clothing, and the infamously croc-infested Daly River in Australia.

"We weren't catching any fish - because the river was flowing too fast - so I thought, 'Why not?'," the fisherman said. "But when I woke up the next morning, it didn't seem so clever."

"It was quite a sight," said the fisherman's friend Billy Innes. "Someone dared him to get on to one of the logs and row across the river."

In return, the makeshift Crocodile Dundee was promised two cases of Jack Daniel's. "He managed to stay on for quite a while before getting back into the boat," said Innes.

The Daly River is teeming with so many crocs, that the local government approved a plan four years ago to allow trophy hunters to slaughter saltwater crocs in exchange for money.

The move was encouraged by the death of a young man who had been attacked by a croc while swimming across the Daly River to get some beer.
