Mad Max Redux?

Beware of the cassowary.

Latest from the Daily Telegraph:

"Australians trying to rebuild in the wake of Cyclone Yasi have been warned to stay away from cassowaries – huge flightless birds with claws that can disembowel a human – on the hunt for food after their habitat was destroyed by the storm."

These creatures weigh as much as a medium-sized goalie but may disembowel a human with one kick (unlike most goalies except German ones). Has Oz post-cyclone become such a dangerous wasteland? Read all about it here.
