Wildfire victimizes wildlife in Australia
Firefighters are getting a grip on Australia's deadly brushfires, but they are still tallying the damage -- at least 181 people have died and hundreds of homes have been destroyed. According to Reuters, the disaster area is more than twice the size of London and it is home to some of Australia's most famous animals.
