Drop Bear

The prey of that drop bear was particularly unlucky.


This woman was fortunate. She was attacked by a drop bear in the Grampians National Park, but survived. She attributed her survival to the friends she was walking with, who beat the drop bear off with their backpacks.

Just another friendly reminder: When you’re out and about in Australia, don’t forget your Vegemite!
