Beware the Rainbow Serpent reports:

A Western Australian man is facing a hefty fine and potential jail time under the state’s cultural heritage laws for allegedly disrupting the rainbow serpent after building a bridge over a creek on his property. …

Mr Maddox was charged under the unamended 1972 laws for building a creek crossing on his property, which the prosecution claimed had disrupted Waugul — a rainbow serpent central to mythology for Noongar people — as he removed a large amount of silt from the creek, Sky News Australia reported.

I look forward to the Rainbow Serpent appearing as a witness for the prosecution.
