From geese that guard Chinese police stations to goats trimming the grass of San Francisco's airport, animal employees have some unusual jobs -- many that are too dirty, dangerous, difficult or expensive for humans.
A new proposal out of Indonesia, for example, posits placing a prison on an island whose coasts are guarded by crocodiles. It's part of the nation's anti-drug effort and the prison would house convicted drug criminals who are on death row.
"We will place as many crocodiles as we can there. I will search for the most ferocious type of crocodile," said Indonesia's anti-drugs chief Budi Waseso, according to AFP.
A big plus for the proposal is that crocodiles can't be bribed, unlike their human counterparts.
