Target: Commissioner of Police Grant Stevens, Southern Australia
Goal: Demand justice for a kangaroo that was tortured and killed by a group of young men who posted the barbarous crime on social media.
In an astonishingly sadistic act of animal cruelty that was posted on social media, four men stomped on a wild kangaroo’s head so viciously that the animal’s eyes bulged from his sockets and his head was removed from his body. Before this horrific slaughter the men ran down the animal with their vehicle, then they proceeded to brutally torture it. They stabbed the animal several times, and put out a lit cigarette on his hide.
It is hard to imagine the fear and pain that this wild animal endured as it was tortured for the camera. All of the suffering that this poor creature endured was so that these men could share the film of their exploits on Snapchat. These disturbed individuals thought that this video would be fitting to share with the world. It is only fitting that this nightmarish video of them abusing this animal should lead to their capture and punishment.
The crime took place in Australia where the punishment for this crime is up to four years in prison or up to 50,000 Australian dollars in fines. Sign this petition to urge the police to find the twisted men responsible for this horrendous act of cruelty to an innocent animal.
Dear Commissioner Stevens,
In August a group of four men ran down, tortured and killed a kangaroo; they then proceeded to post a film of this on the social media platform Snapchat. This horrible act of animal cruelty has yet to be punished. The men responsible have yet to be found and brought to justice for their barbaric behavior.
After he was hit with their car, the kangaroo was filmed as they stabbed it, burned it with a lit cigarette and stomped on the poor creature until his head became detached from his body. The callous nature of this crime is disturbing in its lack of remorse; the kills sought to share their perverse pleasure with the online world. This aggravated cruelty deserves a response from the law.
I urge you to do more to find the twisted men that committed this crime. Who knows what other acts of sick violence they are capable of?
[Your Name Here]
