Yes sad. Didn't know this.. Always learning...

Having worked in Western Australia on a cattle station we would see them daily BUT, (certainly not in the numbers in the article).
Not uncommon to see a father and three chicks (as the father raises the offspring).Some parts of the article suggests they are dangerous, well yes i suppose if they were threatened, but I've been within 10 meters without concern...

When allowed to wander in a tourist environment they become quite tame and will steal your sandwich in a flash.....

This video really made my day.  Her sense of humor is welcome in a world so full of conflict and real wars.  So, many thanks to Kahuna.
