Panthers’ owner John McNeill spent £200,000 buying a 12-day haul of ice cream for a young elephant to make sure that his pet didn’t make the same mistake three years later as a baby mammoth on the banks of the Great Barrier Reef.

After the giant mammal got stuck on t카지노 사이트he ice, he dragged the 2m-long elephant around with a rope until it finally got out. But the elephant made it back to the beach without any injuries.

The giant animal, whose nam바카라사이트e means “beautiful in a bush”, is the latest found in Australia. Other recent finds in Australia include the giant koala, which바카라사이트 is still recovering from a 10-year stay in a hospital in the Southern Alps, and two baby elephants which were found floating in water off Tasmania.

Mr McNeill, of St Peters, Queensland, spent nearly half of a million dollars to find and purchase the ice cream for the elephant to eat in May 2007.

His wife, Tracey, had decided not to stay in Tasmania when the calves arrived.

Mr McNeill, who is 66, now has another baby on the way and says his elephant is an inspiration.

“The elephant is going to learn from this,” he said.

The frozen food, containing about 100kg of ice cream, is intended to be eaten by the elephant.

While the giant elephant was not named, it was referred to as a “dolly” and appeared to be around 9m tall.

An Australian hunter found a turtle last night in a field on the Sunshine Coast, and said he was determined to return to the country to re-capture it.

The young turtle, called Ocelot, was rescued by a hunter in the south-west of Queensland who was hunting in the Sunshine Coast.

The 20kg reptile, a male with a very long tail, was found on the ground just off St Vincent’s Day forest road, just outside the town of Sunshine in the south-east of Queensland
