In trending news this morning, an Australian police helicopter captured amazing video of a nighttime kangaroo fight club, plus Milam County is trying to become the second headquarters for Amazon.
First up, an Australian police helicopter captured amazing video of a nighttime kangaroo fight club. The rumble took place somewhere in the Victoria Region Bushlands.
The fight was captured in the middle of the night by a Victoria police helicopter's infrared camera. The two marsupials use their arms and legs to combat one another. A third kangaroo can be seen in the background. Kangaroos are the largest marsupial species. They are native to Australia and are prone to fighting.
Also trending, ever since Amazon announced they're looking for a new location for their second corporate headquarters, cities across the country have been putting in their own bids and now you can add a small, Milam County community to the list.
Milam County is throwing their hat in the ring to be that second home to Amazon. Milam County Judge Dave Barkemeyer recently made the announcement.
Amazon announced last month the new location could involve as many as 50,000 jobs and a capital investment of as much as $5 billion. Dozens of major cities are submitting proposal including Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio. The company wants a city with a large talent pool, mass transit, and access to a major airport.
The company is expected to make a decision on its new headquarters next year.
