Post World War 2 Japan has had a strict self- defence only policy, but the Land of the Rising Sun is about to declare war on our friends in the animal kingdom

Having debated since March on how to deal with wild animals such as boars, bears and monkeys who attack crops and enter populated areas, a group of Japanese ruling party politicians has agreed to call on the military for help.

   Japanese Macaque monkeys, probably the coolest monkeys in the world, besides us ofcourse.

Under the plan, subject to approval from party executives, local leaders will be able to request help from the country’s Self Defence Forces to build fences and set traps. Some in the party are also calling for troops to use guns.

But the defence ministry is cautious on the use of weapons as Japan’s military activities are strictly curtailed by its pacifist constitution.

Oh deer….

Meanwhile, the ruling parties plans’ seem to be falling on deaf ears. Nearly half of Japanese voters want the ruling coalition to lose its upper house majority in July elections, a Kyodo news agency poll showed on Sunday.

The poll of 1,858 voters found 46.9 percent hoped Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s Centrist Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and its junior coalition partner New Komeito would lose, compared with 43.6 percent who wanted the ruling bloc to maintain its majority.

Shinzo Abe, lucky wild animals can’t vote.

 A vicious attack has left an 8 year old Indonesian boy dead over the weekend in an attack rare in its kind .

 “The Komodo attacked him, bit him and tossed him around, and only released him after villagers came and threw stones at it,” Manggarai barat district police chief Buce Hello said.

The boy, named Mansur, was having a toilet stop in a bush area on Saturday when he was attacked .

The island, one of the largest in the Komodo national park, has no medical clinic and the boy, a local villager, died shortly after the attack, he said.

The park and the western and northern coastlines of neighbouring Flores island are the natural habitats of the giant Komodo dragon, which is the world’s largest monitor lizard.

The lizard can grow up to 3m long and weigh up to 140kg.

There are an estimated 3000 Komodo dragons in the park and surrounding areas.

The previous quickest crossing was by fellow barnacle goose Godzilla who made the journey in about eight hours.

Barbow is part of a project to tag and track the travels of 10 migrating geese.
