Wombat Falsley Accused
Just when you think you've heard it all. . .
A New Zealand man has been sentenced to community service after calling the local police to report that he'd been raped by a wombat. He also claimed that after the wombat had assaulted him, he began speaking Australian.
One has to wonder what would prompt someone to make such a claim. Are marsupial molestations a common event down under?
Here's a similar news story, also from New Zealand. A man was charged with assault with a weapon after throwing a hedgehog at a teenager. Apparently, hedgehogs are considered to be weapons down there. (The hedgehog died, by the way).
If Charlton Heston were alive, he'd probably be down there campaigning to keep hedgehogs legal.
