Trent Burton: Crocodile attacks animal handler in Australia (VIDEO)

You know that old saying 'don't bit the hand that feeds you?' That doesn't apply to hungry crocodiles.

Just ask trainer Trent Burton.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald he was performing one of the regular crocodile feeding shows at Shoalhaven Zoo at North Nowra when the croc grabbed him and dragged him into the water.

He managed to get away and was rushed to a hospital, according to the TODAY Show.

7 News reports he suffered three or four tooth punctures, a gash in his palm and a busted knuckle.

He plans to work with the crocodile again.
