Mareeba, Australia - A long standing feud between two residents of this rural township in Australia ended horribly when Roy Bird attacked his neighbour with a 12-ton Excavator. Yes, you read that correctly, an Excavator. Bird and his neighbour, Wayne Smith, argued about a great many things. They had exchanged words in the past regarding both a fence and a disputed property line. However, on the day in question they were arguing over how best to properly dispose of a dead cow, which is apparently the sort of things folks in rural areas often discuss. Things escalated and then Bird jumped behind the controls of the machine and swung the bucket, hitting Smith in the groin. Smith dropped to his knees in pain and apparently not realizing he was dealing with a crazy person, decided to start throwing rocks at Bird. This prompted Bird to take another swing at Smith who Doctors report later died from "severe bladder, pelvic and groin injuries". Roy Bird is claiming self defence, "I f---ing wacked him, its a simple as that. He was throwing f---ing stones at me". In this David vs. Goliath story, it looks like Goliath won.
