A fearless pub owner who fought off a rampaging crocodile by banging it over the pinnacle with a frying pan, said the animal needed a ‘good lesson’.
The wild moment was captured on camera on the Goat Island lodge within the Northern Territory with Kai Hansen refusing to back down from the charging 2.5m reptile.
Two strikes on the nose was enough for the trouble-making croc to show around and race back to the water.
‘I would not say it’s an on a regular basis event, but I’ve got to remain secure and do what I can,’ Mr Hansen told Each day Mail Australia on Tuesday.
‘Nobody got hurt and the croc got a superb lesson.’

The rugged outdoorsman said the confrontation began when the beast wandered too near the enduring venue and have become aggressive.
He ventured all the way down to the river to be certain that the trail was secure for visitors, arming himself with a heavy-bottom saucepan.
It isn’t the primary run-in Mr Hansen has had with a charging saltie.
Back in 2018 his pet dog, Dumb Blonde, was eating by a three-meter monster on the Adelaide River.
Despite the heartbreak and ongoing dangers posed by the animals, Hansen said he is not scared.

‘Whenever you’re driving along in a automobile and impulsively a dog is correct in front of you, are you scared, no, you only do what you’ve got to do,’ he said.
‘You only work by instinct.’
Response from commenters on social media was divided with some cheering on the bravery of Mr Hansen and others claiming he was taking a severe and unnecessary risk.
‘That Gator understood the project. He was gonna be in that frying pan and that is why he went back to that water,’ one American joked.

One other was skeptical of the selection of weapon, warning: ‘I even have seen the teeth marks on oars which were used to discourage cranky crocs.’
A 3rd called Mr Hansen ‘uncontrolled’ and a ‘very different unit’.
Others said they felt sorry for the croc.
‘In case you’re dumb enough to hold by croc infested lands and something happens… I can hardly blame the croc,’ one person commented.
