The Emu War (which happened in Australia) neatly summarised in Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emu_War
I took a few screen shots just in case someone cleans up the page.
Although The Great Emu War in Australia was a travesty of sorts, I hope this reminds everyone not to always take what you read on Wikipedia as gospel.
P.S. Will post more pictures from my Art Science Museum visit when I can be bothered. Forgot to bring the portable hard drive today. I usually update my blog at work.
