DELWP Senior Investigator Mike Sverns said:
This is appalling and immoral behaviour.
The kangaroo had been shot at least three times prior to it being arranged in the chair.
It would have taken some time to stage the kangaroo in that position on the side of the road.
We are certain that someone would have seen something, given the public area and traffic flow of this main road.
According to DELWP penalties for killing wildlife range from $7,500 to $36,500 or up to 24 months imprisonment.
Generally if you wouldn’t like someone to do it to you, it is probably a bad idea to inflict that same thing on someone else, be they human or animal.
Here’s hoping the responsible parties are brought to justice.
