Armadillo Arrested On Weapons Charges

I've mentioned Australia's draconian gun policy here before. When an armadillo, enroute from Texas to Adelaide, arrived in Sydney recently, it was promptly detained by customs officials. The stuffed animal, was mounted on its hind legs, and was dressed with a toy pistol holster, cowboy hat and sheriff's badge . The actual charge was a violation of wildlife protection laws. The Aussies seem to think that armadillos are an endangered species. That news will come as a surprise to Texans, who consider them a nuisance, and who often find them as roadkill.
