Wallaby On Ecstasy Dies On An Irish Dance Floor: What Really Happened?

by | 19th, October 2010

WHAT happened to the wallaby that was allegedly plied with ecstasy and drink before it took to the dance floor at the Clarion Hotel in Liffey Valley, Ireland, when the DJ spun Skippy the Bush Kangaroo?

It was a 30th birthday party and about 150 guests were there. The wallaby had, reportedly, been hired for the occasion. Rumours are that the wallaby died.

“There is no evidence at this stage of a body, or evidence to suggest it is dead,” says a garda source.

Hotel manager Garret Marrinan has handed CCTV footage of the incident to the police. He says a duty manager became suspicious:

“He actually had to climb up on to the stage to look in, and when he looked in he noticed a box and out of it came what he described as something like a large dog. By the time he got down through the crowd, the animal and the box were gone. We had no idea where it came in or how it got out of the hotel. The whole thing was all a bit upsetting to be honest with you.”

Alexander Scholl, owner of Australian Super Circus Sydney, in Ireland with his act, has been questioned by detectives investigating the incident. The Belfast Telegraph says that circus is 500 meters from the hotel, Says Scholl:

“They think it was one of my wallabies but it definitely was not. I would never lend them out to a nightclub with all the noisy music.

“Someone told them the wallaby was given an ecstasy tablet and now it is dead. I said if it is dead then it is not one of my wallabies. I showed them Skippy and Sydney.”

So. What happened. Did the wallaby die? Was it spiked with drugs? Were you there?

Says the PA:

“We believe that it was hired and brought to the party for around 10 minutes. We are investigating an allegation that it was given alcohol but there is no evidence of that either at this stage. After the CCTV footage, no one knows what happened, good, bad or indifferent.”

Where is the shaggy wallaby..?
