A calf bred in the Kimberley in Western Australia might be spared from the sale yards, and dinner plate, because of a uniquely Australian marking
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au is even taking bets on the patriotic arrival with $21 on offer for the PM Malcolm Turnbull to step in to prevent him ending up in a butcher’s freezer.
With Tasmania scandalously missing from his skin artwork, getting a tattoo of the Apple Isle is a $101 shot while replacing the Cash Cow on Sunrise is offered at odds of $501 alongside being named our next Australian of the Year!
There are also wagers available for his chosen name – with Ozzy the best pick at $5.00, while McDonald’s ($5.00) unfortunately leads the cattle call ahead of Hungry Jack’s ($6.00) to be his final destination.
“It would be an udder disgrace if the calf ended up in a Big Mac so hopefully the PM will step in and turn this bull around, he could probably milk the publicity from it too,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
