Cranky koala mauls kidnappers

Jump to last reply

Four men who planned to abduct a koala from Rockhampton (Queensland) Zoo and trade it for drugs abandoned the heist when the animal proved to be extremely vicious and inflicted numerous wounds on the would-be abductors. The thieves, who are obviously no Einsteins, stole a furious 40-kg freshwater crocodile instead, somehow manhandling it over a 1.2-metre fence. The croc is still missing.

Why does this sound like something out of a Carl Hiassen novel?
