PETITION TARGET: New South Wales Attorney General, Mark Speakman
A teenager has been charged for a horrific, hour-long rampage in rural Australia when he reportedly plowed his vehicle deliberately into approximately 20 kangaroos, killing them in a mindless act of violence.
Shocked locals discovered the lifeless bodies of the murdered kangaroos – including several baby joeys – scattered across the lawns of a residential area in Tura Beach, New South Wales, on the morning of Sunday, September 29.
Police say the perpetrator went on a brutal killing spree between 10:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. the previous night, smashing into the defenseless creatures with his utility vehicle. Along with the kangaroos who were killed outright, several were so seriously injured that officials had no choice but to euthanize them.
New South Wales police have arrested a 19-year-old man in connection with the offence and charged him with torture and causing death to animals. He has since been released on bail.
The attacker who committed these heinous crimes against innocent kangaroos and their babies must be stopped from killing any more animals.
Sign this petition urging New South Wales Attorney General Mark Speakman to press prosecutors to hand down the maximum penalty available and ensure this person receives appropriate psychological treatment to prevent him hurting more animals in future.
