Innocent Quokka not so "innocent"!!!
In a startling turn of events, the so called "Innocent Quokka" of Western Force infamy has been found to not so "innocent" after all!
Since the highly publicised "Quokkagate Affair" the Quokka involved has been living on the sympathy of the public and media alike as some sweet innocent third party that got mixed up with the wrong crowd.
However following extensive research by respected investigative journalist and published author, Claire McNab, for her recently released "The Quokka Question" an entirely different picture has unfolded of a seedy underworld on the Island of Fremantle which would suggest the original name of "Ratsnest" may be very appropriate after all.
In revelations that read like a fourth installment of the Godfather Series, a very disturbing underbelly has been exposed on Rottnest Island and at Ground Zero is the, until now, public darling "Innocent Quokka".
Prior to the "Quokkagate Affair" this seedy character was more commonly known as Nigel to his mother and Nigel "the Knife" to a fearful Quokka community on the resort island.

In a series of secure interviews and stakeouts McNab has collected damning evidence against Nigel including being involved in various levels of crime and corruption escalating from petty theft through to cultivating cannabis and prostitution.
It is alleged that Nigel even has a scam running where he charges school leavers and sportsmen for the opportunity to throw or kick one of his fellow Quokkas yet the participating Quokka sees none of this profit.
McNab claims that on the afternoon of the infamous "Quokkagate Affair" Nigel had to put himself forward to cover his trail with suspecting fellow Quokkas.
It is rumoured that Nigel profited handsomely from the incident and is now riding a few moments of discomfort for all he can, including sending letters to journalists reporting on the Western Force reminding them to include throw away references in unrelated stories.
If the damning evidence provided by McNabb proves to be accurate then the "Innocent Quokka" should expect a massive backlash from a to date tolerant public.
McNabb provided exclusive investigative photographs to TWF of Nigel "the Knife" allegedly carrying out his shocking double life.

TWF approached the alleged "Innocent Quokka" for a quote but couldn't be bothered with what he had to say anyway so didn't bother listening.
