Australian Police Seek Culprit For Hit-And-Run Killings Of Up To 20 Kangaroos

Twenty kangaroos, including joeys, were killed and three remaining joeys are in veterinary care, said Janine Green, a volunteer with Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service (Wires), who discovered the kangaroos.

Police woke Inexperienced round 1 a.m. Sunday and gave her a surviving Joey to look after.

As many as 20 kangaroos, including baby joeys, were killed late Saturday in what is believed to have been a mass slaughter by vehicle.

20 kangaroos have been found dead after a truly horrifying attack in Tura Beach on Saturday night.

Independent UK pointed that kangaroos who were severely injured but were killed during the inhumane act were euthanized. She believes the attacker used spotlights mounted on a truck, "so the roos would have stood there stunned and then they just ran them down". "She had the joey in her pouch", Green told 10 daily.

Locals have been "utterly gobsmacked" by the events. They've lived there forever. Sure, they're risky when you're driving at night, or if you get too close to them.

Kangaroos are not only a part of our own coat of arms, but they're also relatively unproblematic animals.

She said the kangaroos were found strewn across the streets and front yards of the community of Tura Beach, many dead, others almost so and in extreme pain.

"When I went out this morning there were about four or five I could see just lying dead with broken bones and the bones actually protruding from the skin, so they'd been hit very hard", Evans told ABC News.

The spokeswoman added NSW Police and RSPCA NSW have the same animal welfare enforcement powers under the state's Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act.

The police department is asking anyone with information on the incident to come forward.
