Kangaroo Apparently Run Over by Tractor Deserves Justice

Target: Kate Gavens, Chief Conservation Regulator of Victoria, Australia

Goal: Find and punish tractor driver who allegedly deliberately struck and killed kangaroo to the fullest extent of the law.

A Facebook video seems to show a callous act of deadly brutality against one of Australia’s most beloved animals. In the video, a man appears to run over a defenseless kangaroo with a tractor. Tragically, the poor animal lost his life from injuries sustained in the alleged attack.

The motive for this killing appears to be nothing other than sheer cruelty. The man in the video seemingly yells obscenities as the events unfold, screaming “he’s mine!” at the kangaroo. The suspect also may actually be the one filming the animal’s vicious death. An investigation has since been launched in Victoria, the Australian state where the reported attack took place.

Sign the petition below to echo calls for the strongest possible penalty against the alleged perpetrator of this disturbing crime.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Gavens,

“As shocking as this cruelty is, we will continue to see animals treated in this way while their recreational slaughter is permitted. We need to see real protection for our native animals, and we need to see it now.” This statement, made by an Animal Justice Party MP following a sickening alleged tractor hit-and-run of a kangaroo, must be heeded.

The Conservation Regulator promised “strong action” once this apparent crime is investigated and the perpetrator positively identified.  The Ministry of the Environment further reassured continued movement and attention on the case while invoking the possibility of heftier legal penalties under the Wildlife Act. Please honor these promises and deliver justice for a beautiful, innocent animal taken in an apparent act of inexcusable cruelty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Nothing allowed to live in peace with so many sick humans running loose in the world. They are a disease. They need to be brought to task and punished severely.
