“A long time ago I used to go hunting at Yardanggarlm. This time I went hunting with my dog. I went hunting there. I was looking for bush turkeys, kangaroos, anything. I found a turkey but I had no bullets for my rifle. No gun, no anything. So I got my dog to get the turkey. He jumped down from my car. He ran underneath the car, chasing a big goanna. He ended up getting that goanna and then I sent him after the turkey. He jumped and grabbed the turkey by the leg and pulled him down. He grabbed him just when he was ready to fly away”.
