When I first heard about this I thought some bloke was having a lend of us.

When I was a kid, a wombat knocked me over, but I've never heard of an attack.

Have a look at http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/wombat-mauls-bushfire-survivor-20100406-rpeu.html

Just saw the guy interviewed on the news, all bandaged up around the forearms and a couple of bites to the body, and all the time through the interview the would pan onto a set of paws.
When calling for help some one came and helped the guy and quote "disposed of the'.
Still find it hard to believe.

When we were at Wilson's Prom a few years back the ranger was telling us that the wombats have learnt that a good feed can be had if they can get into campers tents and as a result more than one tent has been destoyed by a 'rampaging wombat". He also told us of a Canadiian who had his leg broken when trying to stop a wombat and the beast hit him at full tilt!! Sounds good.

US national parks have bears, we have wombats!!!

Just saw it on the news.
and generaly wombats go the other way in a hurry unless he was cornered.

They should have run that story 7 days ago.

That’s not necessarily the case.

We were clearing a trap line back in the mid sixties on the border of some bush country that abutted open country. There was about 100ft of slashed bracken that had been chained the year before.

This bloke came charging out of the bush and had the old man and I hopping all over the place. We put it down to the rooting season.

LOL

It was not a true wombat

It was actually a rare species of subterranean drop bear and we all know how dangerous drop bears are.

the wombat story is just a cover so tourists are not panicked into fleeing the country !

yeah, I've seen the bloke on TV and his wounds. But I still find it hard to believe. I think the words Jack Danilels come into this somewhere.

If you saw Monty Python and the holy grail you would already know that a little white rabbit can decapitate people
