    Crocodile savages Brit golfer - but man is saved when friends attack 12ft beast with clubs and buggy
    Dougie Thomson was playing golf when a huge crocodile rushed up behind him and clamped its jaws around his leg - he was being dragged into the lagoon.

    When
    a massive crocodile clamped its jaws around golfer Dougie Thomson’s leg, he was lucky his mates were there to make a snappy decision to help.

    One rushed over and started belting the 12ft reptile with a club and another ran it over with a buggy until it loosened its grip and skulked back to its swamp.

    Dad-of-two Dougie, 58, was lucky not to lose his leg and had to have 200 staples after being savaged while on holiday with pals Brendan O’Hara, Gordon Victory and Martin Botright in Mexico.

    Dougie said: “My ball was in the bunker around 10 to 15 feet from thick shrubbery. I didn’t even know there was water behind the bushes.

    “I took a shot and it landed on the green. Then I heard this noise behind me and this huge crocodile snapped me by the thigh.”

    Brendan was first on the scene and started hitting the beast but it would not let go of Dougie’s leg and began to twist and tear at the muscle.

    The victim said: “I couldn’t feel pain, I was in total shock. It was like a big toy, big black eyes looking at me. Hitting it was like hitting a brick wall.”

    The crocodile only released its grip after Gordon and Martin rode to the rescue in a golf buggy.

    Dougie, from Wishaw, near Glasgow, added: “One of them started hitting the crocodile as well while the other actually drove the cart over it.

    “It opened its mouth a bit. My friends pulled me back but it snapped again and grabbed my hip a bit higher up. Then it just stopped suddenly.

    "When they eventually pulled me away, it started attacking the golf cart. My friends were more shocked than I was as they had to see the attack. I was in the eye of the storm.”

    Engineer Dougie was in Cancun for another friend’s wedding when attacked. He is in stable condition in hospital.

    ~His family are arranging for him to fly to Toronto, Canada, where he now lives, for further treatment.

    He added: “The crocodile tore away all the muscle in my thigh. My leg is like a butcher’s shop window.

    "Initially only two of us were going golfing. If that had happened, there is no way one friend could have helped.

    “It would have pulled me back into the lagoon and had me for supper.”

    He added: “Even after it happened, other people were still playing golf. You’d have thought there would have been at least a policeman to take a report.

    "When my friend went back, the crocodile was still there, just waiting.”

    Warning: Crocodile sign



    His brother Bob Thomson, from Glasgow, said: “The whole family is traumatised and shocked.

    “We are worried and wondering what kind of golf course would allow these animals to roam around.”

    He added: “We hope Douglas will be able to continue working and playing golf but we don’t know.

    "It was the thigh so we are worried about infections and tendon damage.

    "We are a really close family and Douglas comes back home a lot so it has been a real shock.”

    Douglas is the second golfer to be attacked by a crocodile at the Iberostar Cancun Golf Club.

    Edward Lunger, 50, from New York, US, was practising swings when one of the reptiles bit off two of his fingers.

    SubhanAllah they are only doing what Allah created them to do, it is us humans who invade their homes and build golf courses.

    When I was in Florida last year, we went canoeing (a great love of ours) and I didnt realize how many alligators there were in the water until I saw them on the bank. Needless to say I didnt put my feet in the water on the way out like I did on the way in!!! LOL.... What's even funnier is my friend's son decided he wanted to put his hands in the water in the lagoon where he had just seen gators!!!

    SubhanAllah mean animals. Florida is practically built on top of the Alligator's natural habitat. So there will always be confrontations. Same with the grizzlies. BTW, when I was in the States I remember there was this reality TV show where there is a family that hunts alligators. lol only in the USA.
