(WSVN) – A police officer in western Australia attempted to wrangle a crocodile with nothing but a towel.
On Thursday, around 2 a.m., a nearby resident took a video in her suburban neighborhood as the officer got closer to the 10-foot reptile and threw the towel onto it.
According to a police report, several rangers tried using equipment meant for catching stray dogs, which proved ineffective.
Eventually a local wildlife expert showed up, tranquilized and relocated the reptile.
Officials said the creature likely appeared after a flood in the area.
