Haha! Ever try boxing with a roo?
No, I'm very shy of that. The big bucks stand taller than me. Most of the roos here are smaller. Some wallabies and potaroos as well. Met some
this morning and don't trust them on the road. Saw half a dozen or so roadside. They run off the side of the road and sometimes turn around a
straight across the front of the car.
Score since we've lived here our score is 4 and 1 cow. Insurance company loves us...not. Snakes and lizards not included as I can't recall how many
we've run over.
This mornings drive effort saw a mixed grill of wildlife hit by motorists overnight. 1 roo, 1 wallaby, 1 potaroo, 1 possum, 1 smelly fox! lizard and
a couple of birds I couldn't identify. Crows were having a feast. You can tell they're fresh from the blood and innards. Tally that up over a year
and it's a lot just on the small section of road. It's seasonal to be fair but the dry is bringing the animals closer to home and roads. Wind the
windows up on a warm day, there are a few smelly carcasses but the feral wild life cleans them up quickly. Always reminds me of that song, "Dead
Skunk in the Middle of the Road."
Sad but it goes to show how many more must be in the bush. I have 2 mobs of roos sharing the selection here at different times.
