Amorous Aussie roo has outback residents hopping

An amorous kangaroo in the mood for love has female joggers hopping mad in the Honeymoon Ranges of Australia’s outback Northern Territory, prompting a flood of angry calls to authorities.

Territory police said Friday they had received reports of the kangaroo stalking residents in the ranges near the township of Tennant Creek, including a woman on her morning walk.

“There was no doubt about what he wanted, the randy old thing,” the woman told local papers. “I turned around and saw this big kangaroo behind me, so I hastened my steps,” she said.

The woman said the obviously aroused animal bounded off when other walkers approached and she sought to escape.

Later that day a mother-of-three encountered the aroused kangaroo at a night-time speedway meeting, while a man said he challenged the intimidating macropod and came off second best, receiving a swift punch in response.

Northern Territory police told Reuters they were not pursuing the salacious mammal unless it continued to cause trouble.

Doggie theatre

An Australian theatre is staging a concert for dogs.

The world famous Sydney Opera House plans to hold an experimental twenty minute outdoor show which will feature music in such a high pitch that only dogs will be able to hear it.

The one off concert, which will take place on the building’s northern foyer, is being held as part of the upcoming Vivid Live music festival.

Local dog owner Renee Russell said she couldn’t wait to bring along her spaniel Ollie.

She said: “I’m definitely going, I want to see how he’ll react. It’s getting harder to find places you can take dogs so it’s nice they are putting on an event for them.”
