  • Oh the insults to our long-suffering quoll,
    in this bumptious commentat so droll,

  • Selective reporting right there folks. The article fails to mention the fact that unattended children visiting the sanctuary are routinely rounded up, dressed in tiny togas, and forced to duel the tiger quolls on Roman holidays, to satisfy the bloodlust of visitors to the "sanctuary". Unscrupulous bookies make a fortune in illegal betting on the hapless gladiator-tots.
    It would be nice to report that the occasional victorious toddler wins his or her freedom. Unfortunately, this is not the case. These valiant tykes are likely to find themselves swaddled, smeared with Vegemite, and used as the chewy centerpiece in a delicious "devil pinata".

  • "The Cape Otway centre was opened in 2004 by Lizzie Corke and Shayne Neal. In April this year they sourced three tiger quolls from NSW captive breeding programs, which they house in a sanctuary dubbed the Quolliseum."
