Wildlife camera catches some wild life
An embarrassed Australian politician might be awarded ($25,000) because a wildlife camera set up to view animals feeding in the wild, caught him having sex with somebody instead.
Apparently Australia has some pretty broad privacy laws and it's likely the judge will rule that the subtle presence of the camera violated his reasonable expectation of privacy. But are the woods not technically public space? How can you expect legal privacy in the public woods?
Besides isn't the thrill of semi-public sex the possibility of getting caught?
