- Australia's capital battles drought-crazed kangaroos and poison moths
CANBERRA : Australia offers no shortage of natural nasties ready to chomp,
poison or sting the unwary but residents in the capital are facing an
unexpected new peril from drought-crazed kangaroos roaming the city in
search of water. The sleepy centre of about 320,000 people in inland
southeastern Australia proudly bills itself as "the bush capital", but its
proximity to nature has thrown up unusual challenges to urban planners.
