  • "Wallabies trapped inside a fence at a Territory air base are breeding like rabbits, preventing aeromedical rescue services from using the strip. The number of wallabies thought to be trapped inside a fence at RAAF base Tindal has more than quadrupled in the past year. The wallaby population has been multiplying despite a culling program undertaken by Defence that has seen 236 wallabies killed. The NT Health Department stoppped using the base for aeromedical emergencies last November after two Pearl Aviation planes hit agile wallabies on the runway."

    Wait. I guess that's a dumb question.

  • I don't think that's a dumb question either.
