Brekky Wrap: Housemates Horrified After Dead Neighbour's Blood Seeps Through Ceiling

All the news you need to know this Tuesday morning.

Two men from Minneapolis in the US have been left horrified after discovering the mysterious black substance dripping down their walls was actually blood from their dead upstairs neighbour.

Their neighbour had reportedly died a week earlier - unbeknownst to them.

AJ McCrady tweeted pictures and videos of the stains in his apartment saying it had "smelt horrible recently".

After alerting a maintenance team, he and his housemate were left shocked by the grisly discovery.

It was determined the black tar-like liquid was bodily fluids that had leaked through the floor and into AJ’s flat from his decomposing neighbour.

Authorities said the neighbour had died in his sleep.

Queensland Swimmers have been warned to take extra caution as wild weather and recent downpours could cause sea snakes to wash up on popular beaches.

Rhys Chapman Wildlife Services owner Rhys Chapman said the species was already struggling.

“We have definitely seen a few more strandings due to the lack of rain,” he said.

“They drink fresh water from the ocean. There are little freshwater lenses that sit on top of the water and that is how they get hydrated... because of the lack of rain we have seen a few more dehydrated and a bit exhausted."

He told The Courier Mail the highly venomous snakes get washed in with the big waves during storms, and while they may appear lifeless, they still pose a danger to dogs and humans.

The reptiles have been found between the Noosa and Mudjimba coastline, where most beaches include dog off-leash zones.

Tiny Coffins Carried In As Family Farewell Young Siblings Killed By Alleged Drunk Driver

Bushfire survivors will use burnt debris to create a "trail of destruction" from Parliament House to the Canberra-based offices of a mining lobby group.

They also plan to deliver the Minerals Council of Australia a $1.3 billion invoice, based on one estimated cost of the bushfire crisis.

Environmental activists are using the stunt to encourage businesses and politicians to cut ties with mining lobbyists.



Torrential Rain Has Helped To Put Out Most Of The Bushfires In NSW

As NSW copped a record-breaking soaking on the weekend, many were left asking ‘has it helped our firefighters?’ The Rural Fire Service has confirmed it absolutely did.

A woman who lost her home in the NSW bushfires made a similar protest outside parliament in December, spreading its charred remains across the front of the building.

At the time, Melinda Plesman said the Labor Party had gone missing on climate change.

Cameras will be installed at Queensland abattoirs to capture how retired racehorses are treated in the wake of an animal cruelty probe.

Animal welfare groups estimate thousands of horses are slaughtered every year.



Mass Death Of Horses In QLD Paddock 'Beyond Comprehension'

The death of more than 20 horses and the discovery of eight emaciated animals on a Queensland property is "beyond comprehension" according to an animal rescue group that has offered to foster the animals.

An investigation was launched after footage aired last year showing workers at the Meramist abattoir north of Brisbane tormenting horses before they were killed.

It is understood CCTV will be installed to film what happens at "critical animal welfare points".

Biosecurity Queensland will review the footage.

US President Donald Trump says he believes Coronavirus, which has killed at least 900 people, will be gone by April because "heat kills" this kind of virus.

Four More Aussies Test Positive For Coronavirus On Cruise Ship

Four Australians are among more than 60 newly-confirmed coronavirus cases aboard a quarantined cruise ship docked at Yokohama, Japanese authorities have confirmed.

The SARS-like virus has infected more than 40,000 people in China alone since it emerged in the city of Wuhan late last year.

Trump made the bizarre claim during wide-ranging remarks at a White House business session with the nation's governors.

The Matildas are one step closer to qualifying for Tokyo 2020 following a thumping 6-0 win over Thailand in yesterday's qualifier.

Although they were already out of contention for a top-two finish, the Thai squad frustrated the Matildas for the opening half.

But Matildas stalwart Emily van Egmond came to the rescue, managing to score a maiden hat-trick and help the Aussies cement a berth in the final stage of Olympic qualification.

The victory sets up a meeting with an unbeaten China at Parramatta on Thursday, with the winner topping group B.
