Amidst the worst bush fires in history and with a billion wild animals dying in Australia, a particularly evil act occurred on Saturday at Lysterfield Park in Melbourne – a protected area space for animals Frank the kangaroo was shot through his leg with the tip of the arrow leaving a huge hole in his neck.
According to Five Freedoms Animal Rescue, when captured the kangaroo had been hunched over in pain. The arrow penetrated through the kangaroo’s leg, narrowly missing his knee.
As the fires burn, and firefighters risk their lives daily to save life and property, someone, a bow hunter, again shows that all people are not good and confirms why we need greater control over the purchase and use of archery equipment,” the organization posted on their Facebook page.
Frank was rushed to Woofpurnay Veterinary Hospital where he was sedated, the arrow removed and the kangaroo’s leg and neck surgically repaired. After surgery he was transported for two hours to get to the East Trentham Wildlife Shelter.
Frank has settled into the last empty enclosure. Animals like Frank continue to arrive needing help as the innocent survivors of the fires continue.
