This pisses me off.
Someone ran over a pademelon the other day. This sort of this is almost entirely avoidable here. But some shit was driving too fast and skittled the poor little thing. This is only a few weeks after a tree kangaroo was found dead at the side of the road with puncture wounds, presumably from a dog attack.
The paddie that was killed lived on my property. On wet afternoons, she would shelter in her favourite spot next to the bay window, where the soil was dry and the wall provided a back rest. This one liked her comfort. She was also quite a talkative animal and would greet me in the morning with a sneeze, which I suspect was a request for some of my breakfast banana and pawpaw.
I don't have many photos of this one because it was difficult to keep her away from the lens. She would get too close. Paddies are inquisitive animals.
