On Tuesday January 8th 2013, the Bomaderry Creek flying fox colony near Nowra went down to heat stress during record breaking temperatures of 40 plus degrees. Thousands of dead babies were under the trees in piles on the ground.
Local wildlife carers mobilised to rescue and care for the survivors.

I know this happened nearly five years ago but I just watched the video. It was tough to watch for sure—horrible. May this year not deliver a major stress event.

Mother Nature is not a lovey dovey, incense-smelling hippie chick. She can be a hardcore bitch. Such is the Way of Life, here on Planet Earth. I just watched 2 hours of animal footage clips of animals violently killing other animals & eating them. People do it too. Humans are animals too… Now I have to feed my cat & make a cheeseburger. Cheers!
