SALT LAKE CITY — Crocodile Dundee, eat your heart out! Now we have Crocodile Donnie! A Utah resident named Donnie Wiseman was hailed a hero over the weekend after he foiled an alligator’s attempt to maim a zoo employee. The valiant deed transpired Saturday afternoon in front of children at Scales and Tails petting zoo in West Valley City. It was also captured on video. Cell phone footage shows staff member Lindsay Bull feeding an 8-foot alligator when he suddenly bit her hand and pulled her into the water. That’s when Crocodile Donnie dived in and wrestled the semiaquatic reptile off of her.

Another customer also got involved.

Lindsay underwent surgery on her hand.

She’s expected to make a full recovery.

“I can’t explain the level of admiration I have for that man [who helped save me],” Lindsay wrote on Facebook. Company officials also released a statement. “These gentleman could have stayed in the safety zone as most of us would,” they wrote on Facebook. “But instead [they] jumped into the situation, of their own volition, and helped secure the alligator. Their help, combined with the training of our staff member, probably saved her life and her limbs.”

Many of the kids in attendance were there for a birthday party, including Donnie’s child.

I’m sure they enjoyed the show.

Watch Crocodile Donnie kick some ass.

    Guy save girl from crocodile, Internet names him crocodile Donnie!!

  5. Some people do the dumbest ish. Play with alligators, lions ect, then get mad when they get bit or eaten. People leave wild animals alone!!!

  6. @June Summer: She wasnt playing and fooling around. She’s an employee who got hurt feeding the alligator. Didnt you read the article?

    This is why you just leave them be in the wild. But of course humans have to meddle with things and stuff like this happens and every once in a while someone gets killed or severely hurt and the animal gets put down for doing what is in it’s nature.

  8. Mr. SlapYoBitch

    Would be a girl

  9. Aww bless him ❤❤

  10. Brittany Calhoun

    Lucky he was there. None of the employees came to her aid. Stop exploiting animals for entertainment.

  11. So these people literally trap an alligator, keep him in an enclosure the size of a toilet, train him God knows with what means, and then when he attacks everyone is surprised?

  12. If he got the alligator on his back and rubbed his belly he’d fall asleep long enough to walk away like even more of a bad ass than he already is.

  13. I don’t get people trusting wild animals!

  14. Only white people end up in situations like this

  15. The zoo staff to Donnie – “You’re on your own now buddy, but we will stand in the safe zone and give you moral support” LOL

  16. Shandra Johnson

    What the …..was she doing? Feeding him like he’s a chihuahua.

  17. Would a woman have jumped in to save a man? Hello?… wya feminists?

  18. We need more people like him in this world.

  19. The alligator was seeking justice. The attack was not just an alligator being an alligator. He was furious at his trainer for keeping him as a prisoner, and in WAY too small of a space on top of that! So he decided that he’s not going to take it anymore. So he tried to maim and kill his trainer! The alligator belongs at a large lake all the time
