And finally… buck naked

Two nude sunbathers who had to be rescued after being startled by a deer and getting lost in a forest have been fined.

The two men had to call for help after they got lost in the Royal National Park in New South Wales, Australia, The Sydney Morning Herald reports.

Police said the pair had been sunbathing naked on a remote beach but fled into the forest after being startled by a wild deer, likely a Javan rusa.

They were rescued by emergency services, including a police helicopter – and later fined $1,000 AUD (around €635 or £545) each for breaching Covid-19 rules.

The NSW State Emergency Service, which sent 18 people to look for the men, said they “are too often called to situations where people have entered the bush without sufficient clothing, footwear, equipment or preparation for where they are going”.
