darwin award for the person who made this complaint

 An RSPCA inspector investigating a cattle dog that reportedly had no food, no shelter and had been tied to the same spot for months found the deprived pooch was actually a concrete statue.

The incident is just one of several whacky customer service centre calls the Queensland RSPCA branch gets on a daily basis.

Another "hysterical" caller was so upset after seeing what appeared to be an injured blue tongue lizard at the end of their driveway that they didn't dare go near it.

On closer inspection, the RSPCA found the lizard was in fact a rolled up newspaper.

RSPCA spokesman Michael Beatty said another caller was distressed about a "tumour" hanging off the back of a sheep.

When an inspector attended, he found the "tumour" was, in fact, a tail.

"We once had multiple upset callers that had witnessed a maltese (dog) that had been hit by cars on the motorway," Mr Beatty said.

"When the ambulance was dispatched it turned out to be a very dirty and torn-up throw cushion."

Mr Beatty said caller pronunciation was also often a problem, citing examples such as "suburbian huskies" (siberian husky), "rockweilders" (rottweilers), and "woomeras" (weimaraner).

That's not a Darwin award, they're for people that are dead (by the process of natural selection) due to their own stupid actions, the more ridiculous, the better the award Afro

Stu's right - the original meaning was that these people had removed themselves from the gene pool. But people have stated applying it a bit willy nilly, and including just stupid people

Okay, not dead, but removed themselves from the gene pool, which is only death or sterilization
