A Melbourne teenager, Sevdet Besim, was accused of plotting to murder police as part of an Anzac Day terror attack.
His method? He planned to insert explosives into a kangaroo’s pouch, paint the pouch with an Islamic State symbol and then let the kangaroo loose on police.
Anzac Day commemorates the fist major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during World War I. This apparently was the perfect stage for this Muslim teen’s kangaroo terror plot, according to The Australian.

According to court documents, the alleged plot also involved running a police officer over on Anzac Day and beheading him with a knife, before launching a suicidal rampage, in a show of support for the Islamic State group.
The 18-year-old Besim allegedly exchanged online communication with a 15-year-old teenager detailing his plan: “I’d love to take out some cops, I was gonna meet with them then take some heads ahaha.”
That is where the story took a very strange turn, when the two teens then began discussing Australia’s wildlife, including a suggestion that, “a kangaroo could be packed with C-4 explosive, painted with the (Islamic State group) symbol and set loose on police officers.”
There were a few things worth noting in this extremely bizarre story, not the least of which is the animal cruelty inherent in the a plan in which this terrorist’s transport “vehicle” would be obliterated.
Two, Australia instituted The National Agreement on Firearms in 1996 which pretty much prohibited automatic and semiautomatic rifles, stiffened licensing and ownership rules, and instituted a temporary gun buyback program that took about 650,000 assault weapons out of public circulation.
So, yeah, so much for stricter gun control solving the problem of man’s violence against man. Where there is a will, there is a way.
Lastly, who seriously thinks about using a kangaroo? This kid is afflicted with not only extremist ideology, but also extreme stupidity. Luckily, he and his insane plan were thwarted before man or beast could come to harm.
