Only in Australia...

Before I start my Vietnam stories, here's a article from the local newspaper. Now my sincere apologies to anyone who may be offended by my inclusion of this as an "item of interest" on my blog, but really, we're talking about a freaking possum here...

"Fur Flies Over Possum Death"
An Ingleside company has lost its contract with City of Sydney Council after it accidently killed a possum while cutting down a tree last week. The company said the possum's death was the result of poor communication and has apologised for the incident. It said one worker had been stood down and counselling for other staff was being arranged. A council spokesman said "The City of Sydney deeply regrets the incident and shares the anger and disgust of residents..." The Tree Services owner said "Our company deeply regrets the pain caused to any living being and apologises unreservedly for this incident".

This was a serious news item. And it's about a possum.
