In June, ‘Gerald the Aggressive Turkey’ forced officials to close a local Californian park.

But finally, after five months of attacking local residents, Gerald was bagged by a wildlife capture expert posing as a frail, old woman – Gerald’s preferred victim.

“I swear I was getting flashbacks to the velociraptor scenes in ‘Jurassic Park’ as he was ‘cooing’ at me, sizing me up,” read one victim statement.

Others describe Gerald clawing and pecking relentlessly as they tried to run away.

Clever girl boy.

Who else has gone cold turkey today? (We’re looking at you, BNPL debutante Zebit.)

 

To Markets:

European share markets rose on Friday, while Wall Street closed mixed as investors continued to monitor developments in talks over a stimulus package and the upcoming election.

The Victorian premier has postponed significant changes to the state’s COVID-19 restrictions after a cluster of positive cases in Melbourne’s north led to around 1000 tests, which are still being processed.

“This is not anything other than a cautious pause,” Daniel Andrews says.

A loosening of restrictions is still expected to come into effect by midnight on Wednesday.

The ASX is green today, with the benchmark ASX200 index up 0.28 per cent – or 17 points – to 6,184 points by midday.

Online toy shop Funtastic (ASX:FUN) is doubling down on ecommerce, and investors approve.

The company announced a share placement at a 72 per cent premium to its last trading price to help fund a $32.6m acquisition.

White Cliff Minerals (ASX:WCN) is dusting off old drilling intercepts like 20m at 4.13 g/t gold, just 2m from surface at the Reedy South project in WA.

Thick, shallow, and high grade – that’s good stuff.

Fatfish Group (ASX:FFG) raised $1.5m in a “heavily oversubscribed placement” which had more than $7m in bids.

“With the fresh capital, the Fatfish Group is now well positioned to further develop our ventures in fintech, e-commerce and gaming in addition to seeking new exciting opportunities across Australia, Asia and Europe,” chairman Larry Gan says.

And ~4.4moz South African gold explorer West Wits Mining (ASX:WWI)   is now up +1,150 per cent over the last 12 months. Ten-bagger confirmed.
