Bury Your Bananas

Mike O'Neil on the latest attack by a rogue elephant on the New South Wales north coast :

Boulton Close resident Billy Williams woke to the sounds of the 5-tonne beast as it ripped apart his garden and demolished part of a storage shed.

“It was bloody huge,” an animated Billy said. “It just kept ramming the shed where I keep my bananas and beer nuts.

(A Taronga Zoo elephant handler) said any residents with bananas or peanuts in the house should get rid of them straight away by burying them in their neighbours’ yards.

“...these animals are becoming more brazen and roaming built-up areas,” she said.
You have been warned.
