    No, seriously :-


    Australian man tasered in toilet paper scrap.


    A fight over toilet roll ended with a man being tasered, Australian police said Thursday, as coronavirus concerns drive panic buying.


    Police were called to a store in the New South Wales town of Tamworth, about four hours drive north of Sydney, after the man allegedly lashed out and attacked another customer and a worker.

    Now, domestic cat lovers look away now.

    Feral cats in Australia are a huge problem. And no, it's not a small tiger.

    From the 'Only in Australia' File #001-12276110-3x2-large-jpg


    A photo of a feral cat with a goanna in its jaws has been discovered accidentally by researchers.

    Key points:
    • A photo shows a feral cat carrying a sand goanna in the Simpson Desert
    • It was captured inadvertently by cameras being used for carcass research
    • Experts say it's not uncommon for feral cats to take larger animals


    The image shows the feline carrying a sand goanna through the northern Simpson Desert at Ethabuka Reserve near the Queensland-Northern Territory border.

    I read somewhere that NZ has a growing movement aimed at making the country cat free. A reasonable idea if you care more about the native birds and mammals than about cats. I am in that camp myself. Cats are natural hunters and killers, they slaughter vast numbers of wild birds in the UK.

    Received some greens and some reds for my comment. Fair enough on both fronts.

    The way I see it is as Shutree's post describes . . . they're hunters and just kill anything they can get and have caused untold damage to the animal world.

    Also, why should cats be able to roam around without boundaries anywhere they please. Dogs have to be registered, kept on a leash etc... yet cats wander around and crap wherever they please . . . and their 'owners' couldn't give a toss.

    There's at least 101 uses for cats. But seriously, even conservationists and bleeding hearts say feral cats must be eliminated.

    I like any animal as an individual... including feral cats, they're each just trying to survive.

    But as a species cats are devastating to native wildlife and they should be controlled, wherever. Extensive mandatory neutering of pets would be a start.

    I get annoyed enough at my dogs killing birds and reptiles, but at least that's restricted within our boundary walls. Cats roam unrestricted.

    There's a half dozen effing large cats roaming our village, not sure who feeds them but apparently they're there to search and destroy rats and snakes and other worse than cat creatures. And I've never seen a snake within the perimeter, so they're clearly doing a grand job of it.

    One took on Jimmy for his food when he was a pup, but now that he's bigger never mind the snakes, cats only enter our property in rapid transit.

    HOT Prison guard, 25, arrested over alleged 'relationship' with Silverwater inmate

    A prison guard is facing the possibility of two years behind bars over an alleged sexual relationship with an inmate that lasted "several months" inside a Western Sydney jail.

    From the 'Only in Australia' File #001-28783492-8353543-image-m-12_1590375563758-jpg

    Melissa Goodwin on the cover of a Corrective Services magazine.

    Key points:

    The 25-year-old guard was arrested this morning
    Police allege five "sexual acts" took place at Silverwater Prison
    There are also allegations of contraband being taken into the jail

    Melissa Goodwin was temporarily stood down by Corrective Services NSW while an internal investigation into the alleged affair took place at Silverwater Prison.

    The 25-year-old was arrested by detectives at her Ingleburn home this morning and was taken in for questioning at Campbelltown Police Station.

    From the 'Only in Australia' File #001-28782892-8353543-melissa_goodwin_pictured_with_her_boyfriend_caleb_valeri_25_has_-m-9_1590384152-jpg


    Detective Inspector Robert Hollows said the woman compromised the safety of the jail by allegedly having an inappropriate relationship with a male prisoner.

    "She has been charged with misconduct in public office and engaging in a sexual relationship that is inappropriate within the correctional centre," he said.

    "The allegation is that there were five sexual acts at the facility in Sydney's west and also there was an allegation of contraband being taken into the centre."

    Tobacco, lighters and chewing gum are among the items allegedly smuggled into Silverwater Prison, with police warning of "a zero-tolerance approach" to that type of behaviour.

    "We take these matters very seriously — we will investigate, we will prosecute and we will put before the court any officer or corrective services employee … and deal with them that way," Detective Inspector Hollows said.

    "You're dealing with inmates in a correctional facility, they have broken the law and for a sworn officer to engage with any type of activity with an inmate, there will be consequences."

    Melissa Goodwin has been granted bail while police say the prisoner has been moved from Silverwater Prison to "another facility".

    the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) – has found that bird and mammal mortality caused by outdoor cats is much higher than has been widely reported, with annual bird mortality now estimated to be 1.3 to 4.0 billion and mammal mortality likely 6.3 to 22.3 billion individuals.

    Outdoor Cats: Single Greatest Source of Human-Caused Mortality for Birds and Mammals, Says New Study | American Bird Conservancy

    Who would vote for killing a billion wild birds? Every year. Only in the US. The global numbers must be staggering. Feral cats are a problem.

    Sounds like something you'd pay for in the less salubrious areas of Bangkok.

    Aussie comedian Tom Armstrong fools US star with Ivan Milat joke

    An Aussie comedian’s TikTok video is causing controversy after he successfully duped a cast member of the beloved 90s family TV show 7th Heaven.

    Aussie comedian and podcaster Tom Armstrong has left viewers laughing and cringing over the prank, which saw actress Beverley Mitchell duped into giving Australia’s most notorious serial killer a shout out.

    In the video, the actress – who played Lucy Camden in the hit show – can be heard thanking Ivan Milat for picking up backpackers.

    “You belong in 7th Heaven … we need more people like you in the world,” she says earnestly.

    “Hey Ivan! Not many people pick up hitchhikers anymore, but you really helped out the backpacker gang and you belong in 7th Heaven. So thank you, we need more people in the world like you Ivan…Milat, I hope I’m saying that right.”

    “Sending you lots of love and thank you again for being such a big fan and for just being awesome and being you.”

    The actress delivered her heartwarming message, genuinely unaware that Ivan Milat is a household name in Australia, jailed for committing a spate of backpacker murders in New South Wales between 1989 and 1993.

    Why would an American know that name? Rather lame and pathetic pathetic joke, in my opinion.
