"Please don't BOTHER to feed the animals - THEY'LL BLOODY HELP
Reminds me of stopping in one of the NPs between Townsville and Ayr (can't
remember which one) in 1993 and unloading the car to get at the spare tyre
as I had a flat.  My wife, came to watch as an interested spectator - with
no guard, by the time I'd changed the tyre, the turkeys (or wafer bottoms as
we called them) had been into the food box and had a whole 1kg fruit cake!
Still, at least they don't come swooping down to take the food off your
plate a la Kookaburra/sausage theft - that would be quite alarming!
