Pilbara News - - News - Peter de Krui­jff

■ The North West has a de­cent col­lec­tion of hairy and curious crea­tures when it comes to lo­cal and in­tro­duced fauna, and no we’re not re­fer­ring to our hu­man pop­u­la­tion.

So we at the Pil­bara News looked back at the an­i­mal sto­ries that stood out this year among the tales of cats stuck in trees, lost dogs, care­free emus, wild horses, kan­ga­roos res­cued by bak­ers and croc en­coun­ters.
