File Under: "It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time"

When Meredith and his Merry Men realized how fast the emus could run, they had the idea to attach a machine gun on the back of a moving vehicle and chase after them.
Again, this tactic failed. The gunman was too busy attempting to hold on to shoot the gun. The emus raced to the relative safety of the trees, regrouped, and scattered. Even if the gunner had been able to shoot, the vehicle would only be able to chase after one bird at a time, making it impossible to kill off a large number of birds at once. Not a single bird was killed using this tactic. Emus vs. Humans: The Great Emu War of 1932

Your Say

Sounds a whole lot like one of my dove hunts.

I never hunted doves with a machine gun; sounds like great fun.
