Wallabies Shot and Killed in Mass Slaughter Deserve Justice

Target: Ian Stewart, Queensland Police Commissioner, Australia

Goal: Find and punish whoever is responsible for killing dozens of wallabies and leaving them to rot.

Over 50 wallabies have been found dead in a remote area of northern Queensland. The wallabies were apparently killed over several weeks and left to rot in a field, including a number of mothers with joeys still clinging in their pouches. According to local wildlife rescuers, most of the wallabies had been shot using guns, but others were found with arrow wounds or appeared to have been bludgeoned to death.

The wallabies were found on land belonging to the Mareeba Turf Club, whose owner said he had recently erected a kangaroo fence to keep the animals away from the premises. In an act of extreme cruelty, it appears that someone modified the fence to create a trap to corral the wallabies within, making it easier to both corner and kill them. The trapped animals had no access to water, meaning that those who were not killed immediately later died due to dehydration.

It is obvious that whoever is responsible for this heinous act poses a threat to other animals, and very likely to people as well. Given the obvious intent this individual had for maximizing the suffering of these animals, it is clear that they are both dangerous and violent. Please sign this petition to demand that local authorities investigate and ensure that whoever did this is punished severely.


Dear Commissioner Stewart,

Dozens of helpless wallabies were killed in a shocking act of animal cruelty in northern Queensland. According to residents in the local community, as well as rescuers, the animals were discovered with gunshot and arrow wounds, while others appear to have been bludgeoned to death. This discovery is deeply disturbing and indicates someone with a violent intent to cause harm to these creatures.

We, the undersigned, are urging you to do everything in your power to find whoever is responsible for this mass killing. A full investigation must be conducted so that they they are brought to justice and receive the maximum penalty possible.
