Urinating tourist attacked by crocodile in Mexico
Daily Mail ^ | 9/30/2009 | Staff

A U.S. tourist got more then he bargained for when he was attacked by a crocodile while attempting to answer the call of nature in the Mexican resort of Cancun this week.

According to Mexican police 20-year-old Andrew Dales, from Dallas in Texas, confessed that he had been on a mission to relieve himself at the edge of the local Nicupté lagoon , in the popular tourist resort of Cancun, when the crocodile suddenly snapped at him.

He suffered ‘multiple bite wounds’ to his leg and neck and was also left with a head injury after the reptile knocked him to the ground, a police spokesman said.

Cancun is one of Mexico’s premier holiday destinations for UK and U.S. tourists.

Cancun's crocodiles (principally American crocodiles, Crocodylus acutus) are non-aggressive species that feed on fish and other small wildlife.

The 5000-hectare lagoon is home to approximately 25 of the species - though most of them live away from populated areas.

Tourists however are advised to be careful and lagoons in the area are dotted with crocodile warning signs.

You don't tug on Superman's cape or spit into the wind,
You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger and you don't p*ss in a crocodile lagoon.

A whole new meaning for the term, “crocodile tears.”

Traveling to Mexico is as stupid as pissing on a crocodile, and quite often, more dangerous.

I don't know. The article said he "was also left with a head injury"

I was in Cancun about 7 years ago and decided to golf at the Hilton.

On about the 3rd tee, there was a little sigh saying “Beware the Crocodillias”.

Yeah yeah I though, something to amuse the tourists.

I hit a nice tee shot, about 240 up the right hand side of the fairway while my partner went up the Left.

We split up and I walked to my ball.

Sure enough, it was lying nicely in the fairway, about 15 feet away from an 8 foot croc.

I declared that it was an unplayable lie due to ground under occupation and took a drop about 50 feet away, no closer to the pin.

So should I have penalized myself a stroke?

Cheers,

knewshound

There was a pop song "See You Later Alligator" back in the 50s. I was on a sailfishing charter out of Acapulco and I asked the skipper, who spoke regular English, how to say that line in Spanish. He sort of took offense at my question, and replied "There are no alligators in Mexico!"

Later in Mexico City I heard some cat say "Mas Tarde, Padre". I guess that was the equivalent hip phrase.

Both. The latter was probably what made him the former. :=)
