Note: Extraordinarily unusual, the first time I've seen a pack of cats attack a person. ONE cat attacking a person, have seen that from time to time, but not a pack of cats. I read a not-very-good fiction horror book as a kid called 'Feral' which was basically a cat version of Hitchcock's 'The Birds', where cats suddenly and inexplicably began attacking and killing people, but I never thought I'd see anything like that in reality...

Quote: "James Cook University Associate Professor and Irukandji jellyfish expert Jamie Seymour has stated that the deadly jellyfish are moving towards Queensland's Sunshine Coast beaches because of rising sea temperatures. The specialist, who is also associated with the Australian Institute of Tropical Health and Medicine in Cairns, used sampling to confirm the move. He found a one to two degrees temperature rise in the waters off the southern coast. The animals have started moving because of that and Seymour predicts that south-east Queensland beaches could be closed down as stings from the Irukandji jellyfish may increase. Marine experts sounded the alarm after four people had to be rushed to the hospital after they received stings from the deadly jellyfish on Wednesday and Thursday on the western side of Fraser Island."
