Idea of The Day: Indonesia Might Use Crocodiles to Guard Death Row Inmates

Being on death row in Indonesia has just gotten a whole lot more...deadly.

The country's anti-drug agency has recommended a plan that would create an island surrounded by crocodiles to hold death row drug inmates.

Anti-drugs chief Budi Waseso says that inmates can't convince crocodiles to let them go. Solid logic. He plans on visiting various parts of the country in search of the perfect specimens.

From The Guardian:

The plan is still in the early stages, and neither the location or potential opening date of the jail have been decided.

Indonesia already has some of the toughest anti-narcotics laws in the world, including death by firing squad for traffickers, and sparked international uproar in April when it put to death seven foreign drug convicts, including Australians Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran.

Someone was pretty excited about the plan.

WTF of The Day: Bindi Irwin Might Lose 'Dancing With The Stars' Pay if She Can't Prove Her Crocodile Hunter Dad is Dead

Bindi Irwin, daughter of late "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin, is still going strong on this season of Dancing With The Stars.

But what should be a time of intense focus on the competition is not that at all because of one boneheaded decision by a judge.

Since Bindi is 17 years old, she needs her parents to sign a contract giving her permission to participate on the show. Her mother has done so, but the judge is now demanding proof that her father is indeed deceased.

Perhaps the judge has been living under a rock for the past decade? It is pretty much common knowledge that Steve Irwin died in 2006 after being stung by a sting ray.

Bindi stands to loose a lot of money if the judge continues down this path.

Her earnings currently stand at $230,000 from the show, but are only expected to increase with each round she survives.

And with stellar performances like below, Bindi is sure to stick around for a while.

A toronto man needs help to remove his 150 alligators, crocodiles and caimans.

After awhile, crocodiles stop being fun to have as pets.

That's what one unidentified Toronto man discovered after he begged a local large reptile sanctuary to help remove some 150 alligators, crocodiles and caimans from his premises.

That's right. There were 150 of them. In Toronto, Canada.

The reptiles, some more than three metres long, had been kept in a home for about 10 years before Bry Loyst of the Indian River Reptile Zoo near Peterborough, Ont., was called in to help.

"I couldn't believe what I was seeing," Loyst said Thursday on CBC Radio's Metro Morning show. "I could not believe that somebody had that many crocodilians and raised them to adulthood. These were not baby little crocodiles," he said. "They were adults."



Even though that sanctuary wrangler would not give up the location of the house that kept such a large number of Captain Hook's nemeses, he did say it was in a residential part of the city and the crocs and gators were kept in aquariums.

So, you know. Real good neighbor-type.

Here's some CBC News footage of Loyst and crew collecting the reptiles:

The incident was captured on camera by author Tiffany Corlis at Lake Moondarra in Queensland, Australia. The snake - thought to be python measuring around 10ft - constricted the crocodile to death, before dragging it to shore and eating it.
