Wombat Crossing (Urban Legend)

John The Aussie

So the following story changes from koala, ‘roo, cattle, birds and even camels.  But in so many rural pubs I’ve visited I’ve heard this many of times and each time it is practically word for word…  I’ve even heard a Candian bartender tell me her story of her brother in law back home in relation to moose.

“I live down the road (in some random direction usually between 50-150kilometers away in the scrub) and just recently had a new neighbour call the local council Parks & Wildlife office to ask to move the WOMBAT CROSSING sign on our road.

He reckons  ‘Too many wombats are being hit by cars out here!  I don’t think this is a good place for them to be crossing anymore.”

I’ll leave ya with a skit about animal crossings and all things funny from Carl Barron (legendary stand up comedian)…
