    Turns out that deer was indeed on is own land.

    It was the couples pet deer which they kept on their own acreage.

    They were going to feed it when it jumped out and gored the man.

    Just as well they put it down. I doubt the wifey could have suffered it being in the garden after offing her old fella.

    And it was a cross between a red deer and an elk so the antlers in the ABC pic I posted are more accurate than the ones on the BBC.

    You are correct. I humbly admit my mistake and beg the courts mercy.

    Iggy Pop is currently touring Aus.

    Check out this bizarre clip from Countdown in 1979.

    Three-eyed snake found on Northern Territory highway


    While the rest of the world (well, at least all those feverishly consuming every dark nuance of the final season of Game of Thrones) is talking about a fictional Three-Eyed Raven, a genuine three-eyed snake has been found on a highway in the Northern Territory.


    Key points:

    Rangers found the snake on a highway about 35km from Darwin
    Photos posted on social media have attracted thousands of likes and comments
    An x-ray showed the snake had one skull with an extra eye socket and three functioning eyes

    GIF: The other three-eyed creature everyone is talking about.
    GIF: The other three-eyed creature everyone is talking about.

    The Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife service revealed this week rangers discovered the tri-eyed critter on the Arnhem Highway near the town of Humpty Doo, about 35 kilometres from Darwin.

    The juvenile snake, which was about 40 centimetres long, has become Facebook famous, with photographs of it uploaded to the service's page on Wednesday attracting thousands of likes and comments.



    A lot of commenters have taken a humorous view of the snake's discovery and seen it as a chance to demonstrate their skills with puns.

    One poster, Joel Carter, said: "I tried to come up with a few jokes but they just got cornea and cornea."

    Another, Tony Pantaleo, commented: "But the question is can he see out of the eye … or is the Third Eye Blind?"

    ^^ isn't that racist? Treating people differently because of their religion?
    Shouldn't working with muslims be the same as working with anyone else?
    Or are they special?

    It appears many, believe so. There are far more stories in the press regarding that group, than other topics such as, Thai immigration regulation revisions.

    No, the guidelines are because of racism and ignorance and are trying to alleviate the problem. Is it racist to give ignorant white people guidlines on how to treat the special problems Aboriginal patients have?

    Er....not meaning to be pedantic, but it looks to me like the body has been bitten off. Which means a larger mouth, when you think of it.

    I had a friend in Fiji who went spearfishing and was taken by a shark, probably a tiger. They retreived his hips and legs in one part, and his shoulders and head in another part. His abdomen was taken in one bite.
    The above croc was probably taken by a great white, no problem for a big one to do that.
