    He was "stealing" eggs.

    I remember seeing something about how bullets bounce off crocodile's heads because of the thick scales... not that you'd be aiming there anyway right, if someone is trapped in its mouth.

    I wonder which hurt more. I'm guessing the croc bite. If the shot scared off the crocodile, I guess the pain from the bullet was worth it if it set him free.

    He survived, though -- just hit him in the arm. I'd take a shot in the arm to get rescued from a thrashing crocodile.

    If Steve Irwin was still around that croc would've had another thing coming!

    The Croc would have been fine, the bloke would have had to worry though as he was stealing the eggs, and some how I don't think Steve would have approved of that one bit.

    Wonder if the bloke shouted "CRIKY!"

    I think the guy could be working on the farm, maybe moving the eggs to the hatchery or something. Although you could say in the eyes of the croc, he is "stealing"

    He got shot -- that's what you get for stealing crocodile eggs with Dick Cheney.

    couldn't have been the co-president that shot him, he got shot in the arm not in the face :D
