Update on thug who laughed as he mowed down herd of emus in 4-wheeler

The young thug who laughed hysterically as he videoed himself purposely mowing down at least ten emus in a small town in South Australia was arrested on Friday. Jacob Macdonald, 20, has been identified as the alleged driver running the flightless birds over with his four-wheel-drive vehicle at more than 70 mph along a dirt road.

According to Australian Broadcasting Corp (ABCNews), Macdonald has been charged with four animal cruelty offenses, speeding and using his cellphone while behind the wheel of a vehicle. The 40-second video quickly went viral and had been posted on Facebook in order to help identify the person responsible for the egregious action and report the thug to authorities. At least ten emus were killed as they frantically tried to run for their lives.

“As the emus fell one-by-one MacDonald counted ‘one, two, three’ when each bird was hit. “This is f***ing great. I’ve got that one too … and that one!,” could be heard in the video.

The South Australian RSPCA had been notified and asked the public not to publicly shame suspects before charges had been levied. While trying to identify the alleged animal abuser, two other men had been mistakenly named and became victims of sharp criticism and ridicule.

In an interview with the West Australian, Macdonald stated the video was only meant for this friends, and it was no longer funny.

“It’s the biggest stuff up of my life. I’m not proud of it,” he stated.

He is scheduled to appear in court in Victoria in November.

    Ashamed to call this moron Australian. Most of us are proud of and love our native wildlife, and many of us do what we can to fight for their survival against humanity, development,climate change, drought etc, but then there are idiots like this who don’t deserve to breathe the same air! I hope he sees the justice system f I’m the inside and gets a good long look at it.

    If I could get to this vile and evil animal murdering monster I would mow this monster down making sure this vile and evil animal torturer and killer bastard Jacob Macdonald dies in agony. I am Australian and this monster must be made to suffer. I am sickened by the unimaginable atrocities, bastards like this vile and evil psychopath depraved evil monster Jacob Macdonald are committing against our precious and innocent Wildlife.
    The South Australian RSPCA had been notified and asked the public not to publicly shame suspects before charges had been levied. They know this vile and evil animal torturer and killer Jacob Macdonald deliberately killed these precious Emus and this lowlife must be publicly shamed then someone would get to this fucking monster and this lowlife pos would know what it is like to be tortured and made to suffer.
    Two innocent men had been mistakenly named and became victims of sharp criticism and ridicule. And this vile and evil animal torturer and killer Jacob Macdonald would have been laughing that two innocent men were being charged until the monster was caught and charged for deliberate animal torture and killing of innocent Wildlife.
    I pray this vile and evil psychopathic depraved pea size brain monster dies in agony. An eye for an eye. This lowlife pos must suffer the punishment this lowlife pos committed against the innocent and helpless Emus. Die you vile and evil lowlife Jacob Macdonald psychopath. How many more innocent and helpless Wildlife has this lowlife pos deliberately killed just for the thrill of the kill.
