The Emu War was a series of pest control events in Australia enacted by minister of defense Sir George Pearce. The emus were destroying fences that Australian farmers had placed to stop rabbits from eating their wheat. Sir George Pearce figured the best way to take down the emus was through the application of machine guns. However, the emus were very resistant to machine gun fire. The operation was declared a failure and given the term "The Emu War".
But this was the official story, and for many, the war has not ended. Catch up on the true story with this google doc.

If a post does not have emus directly in it, it must have a story along with it related to the Emu War.
