Nicki Hilliard and several friends saw the animal swimming in the Allegheny River.
Hilliard said she learned how to catch the animals safely by watching the television show "Crocodile Hunter." The secret is to grab the animal's snout and hold its mouth closed. [...]

Although, if her arm had been bitten off then her parents probably would've sued what's-his-name for failing to say "Don't try this at home." enough times.
