In  Adelaide, South Australia, an RSPCA officer was horrified after viewing a series of ten-second videos posted to social media Snapchat showing a group of  young men mercilessly torturing a defenseless kangaroo, reports AbcNewsAu. kangaroo burnt with cigarettes

The video showed a kangaroo intentionally run down by a vehicle and then stabbed multiple times with a hunting knife in its head as others burned the animal’s eyes with cigarettes while it was still alive. The incident is said to have occurred on June 10 and involved three teenagers. Kangaroo burnt with cigarettes 2

Snapchat sends short images referred to as “snaps” and can only be viewed for a user-specified length of time ranging between one and ten seconds before the images disappear.

“I’ve been doing this job for 12 years and I’ve seen some pretty horrible things, and this certainly rates up there with one of the worst things I’ve seen,” stated RSPCA SA Chief Inspector Andrea Lewis,  regarding what she termed a ‘barbaric act’. “Once the animal had allegedly passed away, they’ve stomped on its head until its head came off its body.”

If found guilty of aggravated animal cruelty under the Animal Welfare Act, punishments include up to four years in jail and/ or a fine of up to $50,000.

A teen from the local suburb has been questioned, however the RSPCA has put out a plea for additional information and is asked to contact the  RSPCA South Australia’s 24-hour cruelty hotline on 1300 477 722. Help this defenseless animal find justice and get these cruel offenders off the street before they harm other animals or humans.

    I see the “teens” in Australia are as heartless as some are here in the US. I hope they find the low lives and deal with them appropriately. I know here they would probably get a slap on the wrist and left among humanity so they could continue their ways and escalate up the food chain!

    These are NOT members OF the HOMOSAPIEN SPECIES (HUMAN) they are MAGGOTS and their parents should eliminate them from the face of this EARTH so they can’t ever procreate more of such SCUM!!! If and When caught they should be hung over a pit of wild boars by the toes and Let the beasts start with their faces and work their way up!!!! There is NO redemption for their WORTHLESS SOULS!!!

    I hope they get every bit of 4 years and all of the fine. Put them in the general prison population or at least in a cell with the largest animal lovers in the place so they can have a daily dose of justice. Personally, I don’t think anyone as vile and evil as these creatures should ever be let out of their cages…..

    LOCK THEM UP AND LOSE THE KEY,PLUS LET EVERYONE IN JAIL KNOW WHAT THEY DID.people in jail will take care of them in jail for killing a 4 legged kid wearing fur.any animals killed or mistreated or abuse so be charge with doing it to a human kid everytime.

    Let the punishment fit the crime! Do the same thing to them as they did to that poor, defenseless kangaroo! Those teens are not worth keeping alive! If they can do that to an animal think of what they would do to a person!

    “If” found guilty of animal cruelty. If they are not arrested and charged and jailed, then there is no justice. These psychopaths are everywhere.
