    Taunting thieves steal 16 tons of ham

    Taunting thieves steal 16 tons of ham 'Merry Christmas' daubed on the wall of warehouse in Australia

    SYDNEY, Australia - Thieves who stole 16 metric tons of ham and bacon from a warehouse in Australia left behind a message taunting the business just weeks before the holiday season.
    "Thanks ... Merry Christmas," the crooks daubed on a wall of the Zammit Ham and Bacon Curers warehouse in suburban Sydney as they made off with their haul.
    Owner Anthony Zammit said that when he arrived for work Monday he found a hole in a wall of the building where the thieves appeared to have entered. The stolen meat was worth up to $88,000, he said.
    It appeared the thieves had manhandled the meat several fully loaded pallets worth of it through the hole and onto a refrigerated truck, local media reported.
    Police Inspector Rodney Ormes said the crime should not be taken lightly. "You're talking about a business that's been a victim of a serious crime, it's lost a significant amount of Christmas stock."
    Zammit said he was offering a $4,420 reward for anyone who helped to recover the meat, and that his company would work overtime to make sure all its Christmas orders were filled.
    "We're working 24 hours a day, seven days a week and (have) put on extra staff," he said. "We won't let anyone down."

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion
