Crocodile attacks golfer hunting for golf balls in South Africa’s Kruger National Park

A friendly competition to see who’s got the most balls turned deadly Wednesday night when Jacques Van der Sandt fell victim to an ornery 13-foot reptile that recently came out of hibernation.

Van der Sandt and a friend had a few drinks and challenged each other to a golf ball hunt in Lake Panic out at hole number nine of the Skukuza Golf Course in Kruger National Park in South Africa.

The golf ball hunters went under water three times, but they weren’t the only ones hunting that evening. As the men stood in waist deep water, Van der Sandt was pulled under by a giant crocodile. The friend notified Kruger National Park rangers of a croc attack around 10 p.m.

When the rangers arrived at the scene, they found Van der Sandt’s body inside the mouth of the beast. They shot it dead with a rifle and shared these pictures to send a message to other crocs of the consequences of messing with golfers. They also serve as good reminder to golfers to purchase their golf balls from the club house.
