Meanwhile in Australia   Leave a comment

Between 2001 and 2007, an average of 30 people died in Australia each year in animal-related incidents. The usual suspects — sharks, snakes and spiders — appeared surprisingly far down the list of culprits, the national coronial database (NCIS) reveals.

The deadliest were in fact farmyard animals, like horses and cows.

Even our national emblem, skippy the bush kangaroo, is a killer. He ranked as fourth deadliest on the list.

The reason this rap sheet of homicides is so at odds with our nightmares is that we don’t ride snakes, pat spiders or drive on highways frequented by giant, leaping sharks.

It is doubtful you will suffer heart palpitations at the thought of visiting a barn. The desert, the ocean and the dark gloom of your backyard shed are still far scarier.

After reading the info above, don’t take the captions below too seriously.
