A new YouTube video shows just how bold a dog can be when protecting its domain. Even when that dog is outweighed by 250 pounds.

GOAT ISLAND, AUSTRALIA — A new YouTube video shows just how bold a dog can be when protecting its domain.

The footage was shot at a lodge on the Adelaide River in Australia’s Northern Territory. The YouTube user who originally posted the video explained in the description that they were visiting the Goat Island Lodge with family members. The lodge owner, named “King” Kai Hansen, kicked off the action by throwing a piece of chicken to a 10-foot crocodile lurking near the river’s edge.

“How are you, beautiful?” Hansen calls out to the massive visitor. “I’ve got you a bit of chicken.”

The crocodile, nicknamed Casey, is apparently a familiar sight at the lodge. But that doesn’t make his presence any more acceptable to Hansen’s dog, which can be heard barking and growling in the background.

Hansen then spends the next 40 seconds or so talking to his guests about crocodiles, which are plentiful in that area of Australia. At 1:18 in the video, however, the dog decided that enough was enough.

“Here he goes!” someone exclaims.

The dog rushes boldly down toward the river to growl and nip at the crocodile’s tail. In response, the crocodile thrashes around and lunges back into the water.

Hansen’s guests are left amazed by the small animal’s bravery, referring to it as a “crazy dog.”
