"Strangely, it tends to be the second class of animals (the Odd) that are more dangerous. The creature that kills the most people each year is the common Wombat. It is nearly as ridiculous as its name, and spends its life digging holes in the ground, in which it hides." Douglas Adams

The wombat. Cute, Cuddly funsters of the animal kingdom or cold,calculating killers?

As the credits begin to roll at the end of every zombie movie you always say...couldn't they see it coming? Well we can people , we can. Wombats, with a closing speed like a cheetah(1), teeth that can rend flesh and a disposition that can turn from zero to bitch in seconds they are are the next clear and present danger for our society. We need to be prepared. The time is now. Have you made your wombat evacuation plan?

Myself and a colleague were once attacked by a group of wombats in the south west of WA. They are evil and scary and I hate them. I've decided that the collective noun is a 'belligerence' of wombats.
