A rescue mission for the extremely daring, Indonesian authorities are offering a reward to anyone who can pull off a tyre from the neck of the saltwater crocodile. A rescue that only late crocodile expert, Steve Irwin might be able to pull off, local conservation authorities have been trying and failing for several years to untangle the 13-foot croc reptile Palu, in the capital of Central Sulawesi.

With many failed attempts that is further endangering the reptile, the province's governor, in an attempt to rescue the reptile is offering an unspecified reward to anyone who can pull off the task. The chief further warns that he was not calling on amateurs to hunt down the reptile, but rather addressing people with a background in wildlife rescue and a thirst for conservation.

"We're asking the general public not to get close to the crocodile or disturb its habitat," said Hasmuni Hasmar, head of the Central Sulawesi Natural Resources Conservation Agency.
