In Western Australia, heartless teens videoed themselves bashing a small kangaroo with a plank of wood. The disturbing incident has been posted on Snapchat and is believed to have occurred along the Kalamunda Zig Zag trail late last week.
According to Yahoo News, the video showed a kangaroo lying helplessly on the ground while a teen hits it repeatedly with a wooden plank. The kangaroo even holds up its paw trying to defend himself, but to no avail. After the heartless punk hit the animal with the plank, then he hit it with his fists.
And as if that wasn’t disturbing enough, the person who videoed the sick event, laughed hysterically with the kid as he beat the animal.
“Midland Detectives are investigating the animal cruelty shown in footage supplied to police,” the Western Australian Police Department reported. “Investigations into this are continuing.”
Authorities described the video as “shocking, cowardly and cruel” and have reached out to the public for help identifying these teens. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1800 333 000.
The condition of the kangaroo is unknown.
