When you get tossed from a bar for being drunk - probably the last thing you want to do is to wander into a cage where a crocodile lives.

And police in Australia say a man is fortunate that didn't end up being the very last thing he did.

Police say after the man was ejected from the pub, he climbed a barbed wire fence around the Broome Crocodile Park because he wanted to pet a 16-foot croc named Fatso.

Apparently Fatso had just eaten, because he let the guy go with a single bite on his right leg.

The man then climbed to safety.

Authorities are marveling that the croc released his prey; they say that usually doesn't happen.
