An enormous betting agency advertisement showing a wallaby having sex with a lion has been painted in a field near Tullamarine Airport, designed to be visible to passengers on departing and arriving planes.
The 170-metre-by-90-metre image by online bookmaker Sportsbet, features the slogans “Rooting for the wallabies” with the twitter hashtag #rootingforoz and threatens to reignite a debate about industry standards.
Photographed on Tuesday by Eoin from Skerries Sea Tours who sez:
Did you know there are wallabies on an Island off the Irish coast in Dublin, at Lambay [the easternmost point of the Republic]? They were put out there in the 80s because Dublin Zoo had too many. We see them on our tours.”
