"DAMAGE: Reports of stunned possums and dented 'roo bars' (Australian Muggle term)."
Statute of Secrecy Task Force report on the December 2018 breach of the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy in Sydney[src]

A roo bar is an Australian colloquial term referring to the metal push bar on the front of a vehicle used to protect against livestock collisions, namely kangaroos ("roos").[1]

On 14 December 2018, a Muggle speed camera captured blurry footage of several out-of-control riderless Nimbus 2000 broomsticks speeding on a motorway in Sydney. The Statute of Secrecy Task Force was soon after deployed to track the rogue brooms before they were noticed by Muggle authorities, reporting little damage apart from stunned possums and dented roo bars.[2]
