When Love Comes to Town

A Kangaroo Yesterday

A Kangeroo Yesterday

Polish border guards said Wednesday they had foiled an attempt to smuggle kangaroos, miniature ponies and 11 pheasants in a passenger bus across Poland’s border with Ukraine.”It was a regular bus with 30 or so passengers aboard,” Poland’s national border guard spokesman Andrzej Wojcik told NM news.

“Everything seemed to be fine until we opened and the checked the passports,” he slurred added.

Spot the Difference, Ukranian styley

“You can imagine the surprise of the border guards when they found two small kangaroos, five ponies and and eleven pheasants dressed as mice,” Wojcik said. “Both the kangaroos and ponies are miniatures, measuring 50 to 60 centimetres (one foot eight inches to nearly two feet). He declined to detail had actually been measured in the confused midnight crossing.
“One of the ponies is probably pregnant,” he sheepishly added. ‘It’s a very remote border crossing after all’

The Ukrainian bus driver had insisted he did not realise he was doing anything illegal, Wojcik said. After the amount of Vodka he had drunk the night before, three kangaroos, two horses and eleven pheasants would have been entirely normal. The horses as usual would’ve kept themselves to themselves, but the Roo’s, well you know how what Aussies are like, How dy’a tell there’s an Australian in the room?, Ya don’t they’ll tell you …
He told the border guards the animals had been delivered to him by a stranger in Warsaw and were to be handed over to someone at the final destination in Lviv, Ukraine. After 3.5 litres of Smirnoff a bloke in a hat looking for a ‘safe’ border crossing for the above menagerie, again would have been entirely normal for Dimitri.

The animals were examined by veterinarians and fed by border guards, in a delightful candle lit setting. “They are in good health and will be in good hands,” Wojcik said.

We made our excuses and left ….
