Meanwhile...back in Australia

Very general discussion about absolutely anything at all, go wildly off topic and chuck stuff about. Chit-chat. Witty banter. Crash air-planes. Bring your own "lemonade"

Yah, I'd say that's about right.

Well, I've made it to Mt Tamborine safely. No close encounters with 2 foot long earth worms - or other creepy crawlies. But I shall remain alert...very alert...

Good luck!

(Luckily the fisher-cat who lives in my tree stump is very shy and I've seen it maybe three or four times in six years. I'd like to keep it that way.)

Heck. And I'm actually sad that the Giant Earthworm Museum closed. Sounds fascinating. But you probably would have nightmares.

I couldn't view it either, OzB :? Seems it's a Premium Article and I need to be a Cairns Post subscriber :roll: Maybe you could satisfy our curiosity and sketch out some details?

Sorry about that FB & RSG. Hmm, I'm not a 'subscriber' either [just saw it on Facebook & clicked...as u do if it involves things that eat and/or kill u in Australia, lol]. Here goes:

"Hungry crocodile bit 400kg cow’s head clean off, at Tully creek".

A LARGE crocodile removed from a Tully creek ripped the head off a 400kg cow that came down to the waterway for a drink.

The manager of a rural property at Boar Creek, where 10 head of cattle have been taken by four crocodiles in the past year, has shed more light on the ravenous reptiles wreaking havoc on his stock.

Department of Environment and Heritage Protection wildlife officers removed a 4m saltwater crocodile from Munro Plains station, about 15km west of Tully, on Monday after it exhibited “concerning behaviour”.

A departmental spokesman said the large crocodile was removed from the creek after it had killed and eaten a calf and two dogs.
However property manager Chris Davy, who has worked at the station for 18 years for owner John Porta, said the losses had been far greater than reported.

“To my knowledge, we’ve lost 10 head of cattle that I know of in that time, but we could have lost more. We have cattle that have gone missing in that time,” he said. “We’ve also lost five dogs, and two horses were badly bitten. “One had to have 75 stitches in her head and another was mauled on her hindquarters. They both recovered, though.”

He said the cow that was killed recently by the crocodile was a new addition to the station and had cost the owners about $800. “The cow that they got, it was a fully grown, 400kg cow,” he said. “She probably came down to drink on the other side, or she fell in, because she was only new here. “We only purchased her the fortnight before. “Her head was bitten completely off.”

The working dogs they have lost were valued at about $3000. “The dogs were the worst thing,” Mr Davy said. “They are working, they’re running around, they’re hot, and they are always trying to get a drink, but we have to stop them. “If they jump in there, they’re dead. We keep our eye on them, but every time you make a mistake, you lose a dog.” The crocodile was trapped on Monday morning and it is expected it will be taken to a crocodile farm or zoo."

Needless to say, I won't go swimming there! :?

Ta muchly, OzB. Interesting article :D

I've been swimming in Far NQ waters - but it was back in the days before crocodiles became a protected species. I was more worried about sharks and stingers in those days :roll:

Truly, FB and S666, our beaches are very safe - well, reasonably safe :twisted:

Now for something a little different. Anyone who's visited our "famous" Noosa in recent years might get a laugh out of this.

http://www.radiotoday.com.au/hot-91s-dave-sam-ash-rocking-suburbs-one-song-time/

And the song I'm referring to is the Noosa Song - need to scroll down to it :D

FYI - The "Betty's'" referred to is "Betty's Burgers" which used to be an iconic store in Hastings Street - the centre of Noosa.

I hadn't really appreciated the "uniqueness" of our Australian place names until my American granddaughter, after seeing names such as Boggabilla, Goondiwindi, etc, commented a couple of years ago, that she could make up names when she went back to the USA and no one would know any different!! :D :D
