139. Bushranger Mad Dog Morgan

Mad Dog Morgan was one of Australia’s most feared bushrangers. Resentful, bitter and bent on revenge after being wrongly convicted, Morgan terrorised the Australian countryside and was known for his erratic, violent and rambunctious behaviour. 

His tendency toward impulsive cruelty and unpredictable mood swings earned him his title ‘Mad Dog’. Morgan would often brutally murder his victims, only to weep and beg for forgiveness as they lay dying in his arms.
