When Wallabies Attack:

IN Australia:

WILD wallabies are terrorising a Townsville retirement village, knocking over residents and defecating on lawns and patios.

Residents at Carlyle Gardens are said to be too afraid to leave their homes when the 100-strong mob runs amok in the early mornings and late afternoons.


The wallabies are crashing into cars, scooters and even elderly residents.

Large male wallabies, over a metre tall and weighing up to 30kg, are fighting, falling against the side of homes and damaging walls.

Says Carlyle Gardens resort manager Leigh Bradley:

“A number of our residents are vision impaired and one proceeded to hang clothes on the line and a wallaby was next to her”

If you see a large wallaby with a pair of apple catchers pegged to its ear, do not approach but take pictures and post them on the internet…
