Apparently, the Greeks have had enough of fat arses on their asses. Yes, the poor Santorini donkeys of Greece are no longer going to have to haul fat tourists around the island. They are banning them…fat tourists, not the donkeys. Fact. If you weigh over 100kg you can’t get on a donkey. It is now law.

This is one of the few animals in Australia that won’t kill you. And by that I mean, the Brushtail possum may pee, bite and scratch your eyes out, but it won’t kill you. This possum took a liking to our bread and decided to help itself.
Apparently, in Britain, there has been a massive increase in callouts to help drunken seagulls. It is believed the naughty little scavengers have found themselves a nice pile of brewery waste somewhere. One rescuer complained the birds stunk of alcohol and their van smelled like a pub. Bless. The gulls are sleeping it off at the RSPCA.
My greatest fear is that at some point wildlife will realise that if they join forces and attacked us collectively, we are screwed. Given that, a woman in India was bitten by some mean-ass snake in the middle of the night, while she was sleeping. When she woke up she began breastfeeding her baby before both became decidedly ill. Sadly they both died en route to the hospital. It is believed that the mother passed the poisonous venom through to her child via the breast milk. The family told authorities that they had seen the snake in the house but they didn’t manage to catch it.
What does an impatient dog do when his owner is taking his own sweet time getting back to the car?
The CIA dumped Lulu after a year training. Seems Lulu was basically lazy and disinterested in her career path. Lulu is a black labrador recruited for explosive detection program. Well, that was until she got sacked. It seems Lulu had no interest whatsoever in sniffing out bombs. Nope, not even with the promise of food and games. Smart doggy. She obviously knew , one wrong move and kaboom, doggone!
A cat turned a dramatic news story into a joke… well played kitty
This is what women do in Oz. See a shark in a rock pool …pick it up and chuck it back in the ocean!
Feet up Aussies, seems the early hot weather means male snakes are coming out of hibernation and mating sooner than expected. It’s on. Snakes will be on the prowl for a missus. They will be angry little reptiles ready to rumble with any other male snake they come across in their pursuit of a female. Pet owners have been urged to be a lot more vigilant as some of Australia’s most deadliest snakes will take no prisoners in their once a year mating ritual.
Holy feral goldfish Batman. Just when you thought Australia’s wildlife couldn’t get more freakier, lets introduce the feral goldfish. Estuaries in Western Australia are being invades by goldfish the size of footballs. Evidently the problem is due to people flushing unwanted pets down the loo. Seems the usually freshwater fish have morphed to adapt to the saltier water (and are loving it). As a result they are chewing up vegetation and feeding on the native fish’ eggs. See ya eco system. Who knew goldfish out of their bowls could be such pests.
