First comes finding an oven big enough to cook one in.

Then when it's cooked, throw the cassowary away, and eat the spit.

About that promotion .....
Quote:
Police officer found not guilty of 'sack whack' assault after colleague had testicle removed
Quote:
A police officer who slapped the testicles of a senior colleague
as a prank has been found not guilty of assaulting him.
I think he should also skip asking for a character reference .



Quote:
Outside court Constable Vella was asked if he regretted what happened
the day his colleague was hurt.

"No, not at all," he replied.
Mmmmm , that comment may not help your chances either .

More detail here .

Kicking a Quokka .....

Man fined after kicking a quokka .

I think I major kick to the testicles plus a fine
should have been the absolute minimum punishment even
if they were totally drunk .








Full story and video here .

This is round the bend as far as I'm concerned. The man was stopped, the traffic around him was stopped and he used his cell to take a photo.

For that he should be clipped with such a big fine and have points? And he turned himself in, saying he didn't know it was illegal? Gimme a break!

What happened to plain old common sense?

Well Rb it is clear proof that Australians are smarter than Canadians.

We have trained our beavers to only eat the leaves up high .


Canadians on the other hand .......

They're out there! Scientists search for proof Tasmanian tigers are living in outback Queensland
Quote:
Researchers are preparing to launch a search for the long-lost Tasmanian tiger
Following two detailed descriptions scientists believe the apex predator exists
They say descriptions of the marsupial sightings are 'detailed and plausible'
Over 50 high-tech baited camera traps will be set-up by the team in Queensland
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ueensland.html


Two detailed descriptions have given scientists belief the
supposedly extinct apex predator is alive

They have not been sighted for roughly 100 years .

Ross, we in northern Ontario were told that there's been no cougars here, for about the same time period. After years of some individuals pressing the Min. of Natural Resources after sightings, a private individual finally found some scat that was analyzed and found to be cougar scat. And then cell phone cameras arrived. MNR now admits there are cougars in northern Ontario.

That's an interesting looking animal.

'It's like a drunk bar fight': Three aggressive emus take on a hungry kangaroo as he desperately tries to protect a branch he is snacking on
Quote:
A group of emus have been captured ganging up on a kangaroo as it tries to eat
The kangaroo snacks on some branches before three emus surround him
Not to be deterred, the hungry roo squares up to the large birds
The video already has thousands of views and over 500 likes on Facebook
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...sanctuary.html


The kangaroo squares up to one of the emus, which bares a
strong resemblance to the Australian coat of arms
