This selection of ‘Stray Animals’ signs reveals the control freak side of humanity that won’t be satisfied ’til all our carefully counted ducks are in a row.
As if their native wildlife isn’t dangerous enough, The Land Down Under’s adding stray domesticated critters to the mix. Even worse, it would appear the natives (kangaroos) and the imports (cattle) are teaming up to form fearsome (but tasty) hybrids.

As for the “Straya” on the modified sign above, you wouldn’t understand – it’s an OZ thing. (images at top via Michael Theis and above via Andrew S)
Where’s a good cowboy when you need one? Not in the Manila suburb of Dasmarinas, evidently, or the sign above wouldn’t be there to remind y’all to keep your steers securely stored.
