And Dingo we have a cure!!!
Dingo urine found to repel kangaroos!
"How is dingo urine gathered? Carefully, study says [ :)) ]
Australian researchers say they have discovered a new repellent that can help with everything from rehabilitating old mine sites to reducing the amount of roadkill. It's dingo urine. (click on link above for full story)
This is so obvious isn't it when you think of it? You may even say "drat! why didn't I think of something like that ?"
There is this old Hindi saying that the 'power that made your mouth made the two hands too to help you feed and fend yourself'. So true!
I am sure there is a cure for everything that ails us ( even football ..ok kidding don't lynch me guys :p) on this very Earth. I just hope we discover more such natural solutions for our problems like pests, illnesses and other problems that beset our daily lives.
Imagine if the Dingo had gone extinct...!! A very viable and workable Kangaroo control method would have been lost and the authorities would have to resort to expensive and elaborate deterrences to keep them in check.
I wonder what secrets are there in Nature that needs us to use our common sense to detect and I wonder what we have lost in the fauna and flora that have gone extinct. Maybe a dreaded disease, more deadlier than AIDS will emerge in the future... and it's panacea will be extinct with that tree that we cut down.
Anyways here's wishing people like these Australian Researchers the very best. Hope you find cures faster than we can smite the axe.
