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]

  2. GIVE THIS POS THE MAX PENALTY!!!!!!!! ABSOLUTELY HEART WRENCHING…WHAT IN THE HELL IS THE MATTER WITH PEOPLE!!!!!

  3. Rose Coffey says:

    This kind of insanity needs to be stopped. As long as people continue to get by with horrors like this with only a slap on the hand it’s not going to get any better. We need to start putting real punishments in place.

  4. Run this SOB over with his tractor. Justice served

    You may not believe it. But I find lately that AUS is one of the worse countries for animal cruelty. Disgusting HUMANS there like to target these species the most (feral cats, kangraoos, emus, koalas) and a few others. Go lookup the info .. it’s out there to view.
    It’s a place I thought I might like to visit one day. BUT knowing what little value they place on innocent animals. I don’t see it happening .. EVER!!!
    As for the disgusting POS BASTARD who did this .. you need to be taken somewhere and fed to crocs or sharks or any other animal.

    It’s getting to the point where I can barely bring myself to read past the headline anymore…i just sign. It’s so maddening, all the abuse and cruelty going on. These poor creatures don’t deserve this. And us humans don’t deserve these wonderful animals in our lives. Makes me very sad.

  10. This POS NEEDS TO NOT TAKE UP ANYMORE AIR ON THIS EARTH!!!

  11. So sick of these people who think that killing an animal is “sporting.” Humans are the worst “animals” on the planet. My mental health from the pandemic has been pretty fragile and cruelty like this doesn’t help.

  12. Christine Eckerson says:

    Evil human!! Please prosecute!

  13. I am so sick and tired of hearing about these senseless attacks on animals. These people need to face much harsher punishment than fines and some jail time. When someone can harm an animal they are sick and need to be put away.

  14. Who does something like that

  15. Disgusting worthless fucking human he should be tied down in the road and run over

    Australia is turning into the armpit of the world for animal cruelty. I hear about sadistic, hateful acts like this every day, and I will NEVER visit there. What kind of government do they have, that allows these Neanderthals to commit such atrocities and turn a blind eye. Shameful. The world loves kangaroos, but these people see them as dirt. Others exploit them for their skin. When will it end?

  17. Depraved and barbaric, says a lot about Australia and it’s not good. Find this POS loser and teach him the value of life by locking him up so he can’t have a life of his own – he doesn’t deserve to be free

  18. Sociopath. Next time he will be running over a child, unless punished

  19. Maria Bertrand says:

    Prosecute to the full extent of law.!!! This cannot go unpunished or what kind of message are you sending. This innocent sweet kangaroo WAS HURTING NO ONE! WHAT PURE EVIL. EVIL SHOULD BE EXTRICATED.!

    To STOP these vicious acts…THEY MUST ALL BE PROSECUTED TO THE MAXIMUM. NOT ONE SHOULD GO UNPUNISHED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    BETTER STILL AN EYE FOR AN EYE!!!

    OOPS MEANT TO SAY ERADICATED!
