Australian police made their own Great Wall of sorts - not to keep out New Year's revellers, but to trap a large crocodile.
When the three-and-a-half metre croc "swaggered up the street" in the Queensland town of Karumba to sunbathe in someone's backyard around 6am on New Year's Eve, worried locals called authorities for back-up.
It soon moved out to the front gate, where it lazed for the rest of the day.
To try and coax the croc away, Queensland police got a bit inventive, creating a wall of wheelie bins to contain it.
But it turned out to be a waste of time, with the reptile not wanting to budge.
Officers then made a decision to box him in with hay bales and wait until wildlife experts from Cairns, around 750km away, arrived to help relocate the animal.
