    Indonesia offers reward for plucking tyre off giant croc's neck

    Indonesian authorities are offering a reward to anyone who can rescue a saltwater crocodile with a motorbike tyre stuck around its neck -- and survive.
    The contest will see one brave croc hunter land an unspecified amount of cash, but it will mean coming face to face with the 13-foot (4-metre) reptile Palu, the capital of Central Sulawesi.
    Local conservation authorities have been trying -- and failing -- for several years to find a way to untangle the croc after video showed it gasping for air.
    That sparked worries the tyre was slowly killing the beast.
    After a recent sighting, the province's governor instructed his resource-strapped conservation agency to figure out how to end years of fruitless attempts.
    The agency offered few details on the reward, or how outsiders might pull off the task.

    Maybe @oyarde would like to pick up the reward.

    I'll gladly save this crocodile if someone is willing to pay for my ticket.

    Salties are very vicious. They will even eat their own mates sometimes. The Sydney Zoo used to have five salt water crocs. There is one left- he ate the other ones.

    Don't they hold their mouths open to cool off?
