Kangaroo scrotums in short supply in Australia after rain sends them bounding

Kangaroo scrotums in short supply in Australia after rain sends them bounding | Sustainability Science | Scoop.it
Kangaroo scrotums are reportedly in short supply in Australia after constant heavy rain drove the animals beyond the range of shooters.
PIRatE Lab's insight:

When we discuss about climate change or "global weirding", we normally talk about coastal flooding, etc.  But this panoply of events can also (apparently) include this.  I guess for some people/critters it is not much of a G'Day.
