Seriously, if you were a 50 year old man taking out the rubbish at 11pm and a baby fruit bat flew into the back of your head and scrabbled at your neck with its cold little claws and made you shriek like a four year old girl who just woke up to find a spider on her face, would you go and tell the police about it? No.
The children's TV favourite, Skippy The Bush Kangaroo, clearly lulled a couple of generations into a false sense of security. The furry, the big-eyed and the awesomely cute marsupials of Australia can no longer be trusted. The Australian battleground in Nature's War On Humans ramps up.
Wallaby Goes After Child, Shapes Up To Father For Fight :
"Bones" Bailey yesterday said if he had not been there to fight off the 1m-tall wallaby on Saturday afternoon, he had no doubt his nine-year-old son Morgan would have been mauled to death.
"It’s deadset serious. Someone should get a gun and shoot the buggers," Mr Bailey said.
"They’re not just friendly, cute little wallabies any more – they’re killers."
"This big fella came out and Morgan started to run and he started chasing him, making this roaring noise," Mr Bailey said.
"Morgan was absolutely screaming his head off. I had to belt him (the wallaby) across the face twice, then he came at me – he had his claws up, shaping up like a little boxing man.
"Then my young fella (six-year-old Bodine) grabbed a stick and he finally backed off," Mr Bailey said.
He and Giffin Rd neighbour Anita Coulthard said they knew of three other children who also were attacked by wallabies in the area on separate times last year.
An Environmental Protection Agency spokesman said attacks on humans by wild wallabies or kangaroos were extremely rare...
Well yes, you would expect the EPA to say that. They have a pro-fauna agenda. This sure smells like a cover-up.
Greens leader Bob Brown is somewhere tonight, illuminated from below, laughing diabolically, clapping his hands in delight as he prays to the Green Jesus to direct the wombats and koalas to join in the anti-human bloodshed.
Meanwhile, here's a rampaging, leg-gnawing possum :
Koalas will start dropping from trees and shredding bushwalkers any day now."Mark always wears shorts and the possum jumped on his leg and sank in the claws and teeth. He was trying to shake it off but it was well attached."
Police officers have used capsicum spray to subdue a rampant possum that had been terrorising a family in their home for hours.
"Sorry? Did You Say You Were Attacked By A Kangaroo?"
