In what can only be termed as vicious cruelty to animals, a kangaroo, dressed in leopard-prints was found shot dead on an Australian roadside. In what appears to be sheer mockery, the unknown assailants tied the animal to a chair and places a bottle of booze in its hands. The killing has sparked outrage all across.

The animal could be seen wearing a patterned shawl and propped up against the chair with an ouzi drink in its lifeless arms.

 

The heinous sight was discovered in Melbourne’s northeast by a passer-by.

"The kangaroo had been shot at least three times, prior to it being arranged in the chair," said Victoria state Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning senior investigator Mike Sverns.

"This is appalling and immoral behaviour," Mr Sverns added.

"It would have taken some time to stage the kangaroo in that position on the side of the road and we are certain that someone would have seen something, given the public area and traffic flow of this main road."

 

In appealing for information, he warned that killing protected native wildlife was a serious offence with fines of up to Aus$36,500 (US$28,000) or 24 months' imprisonment.

Investigators suspect the animal was killed at a different location and moved to the roadside, where a passer-by made the gruesome discovery.
