The deadly threat of Rabies has reached our shores. Earlier this year, the Australian Bat Lyssavirus, claimed its third human victim. And only a fortnight ago, a horse tested positive for the virus, the first known cross-species infection. Lyssavirus is Australia’s Rabies, spread the same way, with the same horrific symptoms, and just as deadly. Any one of the millions of native bats across the country could be carrying it. In February, 8-year-old Lincoln Flynn lost his life in the most devastating of circumstances, after being scratched by a bat. This Sunday Lincoln’s parents tell his story, in the hope they’ll save lives.

We’ve all heard of the Nigerian scammers, conmen who bombard us with tales of woe and get rich quick schemes. You’d think we’d be wise to them by now but they lure more than a hundred million dollars out of Australians every year. The latest scam is called black money. Australian tourist Rob Connolly recently fell for such a hoax, while on holiday in Thailand. He lost his life savings and his world has fallen apart. But Rob’s on a mission to expose the seedy world of African shysters, and scam the scammers.

A question hangs over the testimony of Cardinal George Pell to the Victorian inquiry into the sexual abuse of children by members of non-government organisations. Among those in the public gallery were Anthony and Chrissie Foster. Their daughters Emma and Katie were repeatedly sexually abused by the school priest, Father Kevin O’Donnell, from 1987 to 1992. Years later, Emma committed suicide. Katie is now disabled – she was hit by a car after a binge drinking episode brought on by memories of her abuse. On Monday, Cardinal Pell gave evidence about his 1997 meeting with Anthony and Chrissie Foster, but it’s a different story to what he told Richard Carleton 11 years ago.
