Day Vernon and the Kangaroo

On a magic news wire podcast David Roth tells a story about Dai Vernon and a Kangaroo on a trip to Australia. It is a very funny story. Wondering if it is true or apocryphal?

Apparently a photo was taken of the professor and the thief.

Does anyone know any more details.

Funny story.

FISM Rimini 2015 App

Just downloaded the FISM app from the iTunes App Store. There is an android version. It is a thing of beauty. Absolutely bowled over and this will be the next best thing to being there and Scott Wells updates on the Magic word podcast.
