Police Hunt Men Who Bashed, Stabbed Kangaroos On Snapchat
A sickening video showing a group of men fatally beating kangaroos has been discovered by police in Western Australia.
The video shows two incidents of alleged animal cruelty, thought to have taken place in May and June of this year.
One clip shows a pair of kangaroos being bashed with knuckle dusters before stabbed in the head and neck.
One of the animals was then set on fire.
Senior Constable Paul Giuffre told 9News:
'It's graphic, it's disturbing, it's cowardly. In my 17 years of policing it's one of the most disturbing things I've seen hands down'
The videos were found on a Perth man's phone after he was arrested on an unrelated matter.
WA Police are now asking the public for help to try and identify three men seen in the footage.
The three men are between 20-30 years of age, fair skinned, and medium to solid builds.
The first has dark facial hair, wearing a black beanie with a white emblem on the front, and a black hooded top.
The second man has short brown hair, is clean shaven and wearing a black hooded top.
The third man has facial hair and was wearing a dark coloured top with an emblem on the front at the time of the alleged incident
This distressing story comes just days after a man in South Australia filmed mowing down emus on a country road with his four wheel drive.
If you have any information on the identity of the three males, or the animal cruelty incidents, please contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
