Animal cruelty

[MELBOURNE (AFP) — Australian police charged a man with animal cruelty for allegedly shooting two kangaroos with arrows, leaving one of them with a shaft embedded in its head. Victoria state police said the 27-year-old man was arrested after raids on two homes in Melbourne's outer suburbs, where they seized arrows, bows camouflage clothing and a computer.

The kangaroos were shot earlier this month. A male Eastern Grey kangaroo was pierced through the head and veterinarians believe he wandered around bushland for a week before being rescued. A female of the same species was shot in the rump.Both the animals, dubbed Beau and Hope by animal shelter staff, had operations to remove the arrows and are expected to fully recover.

The alleged shooter has been charged with four counts of aggravated cruelty and one of hunting protected wildlife. He also faces an additional charge of reckless conduct endangering life for allegedly using a bow and arrow in parkland near other people. The man was bailed to appear in court next month.]

You guys must have read about the same yesterday. In a civilized society, animal cruelty still occurs and evident in many forms. So sad but true. And we don’t have to look far. Don’t be surprise that it is even closer to home. These pictures were included in the press release from Forestry Department, Sandakan last April where a District Forestry Officer was seriously injured and Forestry Department vehicles were damaged, when a group of 20 armed men attacked the base camp at Ulu Segama Forest Reserve, Lahad Datu, Sabah.

As long as cruel, heartless people still exists, animal cruelty will not end. *sigh * Being listed as ‘protected species’ does not guarantee the safety of these exotic animals.
