WoogieWoogie is a Southern cassowary who lives in the gum forests of Eastern Australia, close to human habitation. Being considered a pest, one man pelted a rock at the bird but learned his mistake as he became disemboweled and sliced one of his arms clean off.

Another person slammed a shovel at WoogieWoogie, but he too was disemboweled.

A family made a huge mistake by picnicking nearby the forests, and it had been part of the cassowary's territory. The family dog had been mangled, and the father had been torn to shreds. The mother and child fled, their fate unknown, and WoogieWoogie went back to foraging in the woods.
