Find and Punish Sicko Who Nailed Koala Corpse to a Post

Target: Ian Stewart, Queensland Police Commissioner

Goal: Punish person who desecrated the corpse of a koala bear.

The dead body of a koala bear was found nailed to a post, posed so convincingly that onlookers initially thought it to be alive and halfway through a climb. Prior to investigations revealing that the animal was long dead, it was thought that someone had killed the animal simply to pose it in such a way; an autopsy revealed that the poor koala had been hit and killed by a car.

Regardless, the fact remains that someone had desecrated the corpse of this innocent creature when the proper thing to do would have been to give it a proper burial or alert animal control to the scene. Instead, they took the body and used it to fool curious onlookers, who were absolutely horrified and disgusted to learn that this cute little creature was a corpse posed in such a way. It is all too possible that this was done for the sake of photo ops, as it is common for humans to exploit animals for photos these days.

The culprit may not have killed the koala themselves, but they have still committed a sick act of cruelty. This display is an example of human contempt for wildlife and selfish need to gain attention and controversy. Sign this petition to demand that the culprit be found and punished severely.


Dear Commissioner Stewart,

The corpse of a koala struck by a car was nailed to a post, complete with gum leaves nearby, to fool onlookers into believing a live koala was climbing the fence. A photo of the scene posted to social media has sparked outrage and horror, and prior to an autopsy and investigation, it was even believed that someone had killed the animal simply for the sake of the pose.

This is a prime example of human contempt for wildlife. The corpse of this innocent animal was horribly exploited, most likely so that the culprit themselves could post a photo on Instagram, which is a disturbing trend in and of itself. The culprit may not have killed the animal themselves, but their actions are just as reprehensible and must not go unpunished. You must find the person who nailed the koala’s corpse to the post and ensure that they face justice immediately.
