On a day trip out to Bateman’s Bay on Saturday, my fiance and I noticed 2 question-raising sights around Bungadore. I’m hoping the RiotACTers can give us a hand.
1. What’s up with teddy bears nailed to trees? At first we thought they were similar to the flowers and wreaths that are used to mark accident sites, but there were a lot of them, and always just a teddy bear.
2. Two wombats had obviously (and sadly) been victims of traffic, but they were lying on the side of the road with what looked like hot pink crosses spray-painted on their sides. (My fiance assures me they weren’t gang insignia, but I’m thinking they might have been victims in something more sinister than road-accidents. No shoes hanging over powerlines nearby, but can we ever be sure?)
