Kangaroos hit by car in disturbing video

  • 06/01/2018

A man is under investigation after a video surfaced online that appears to show him deliberately mowing down kangaroos on a Queensland road.

The disturbing footage shows a car driving along a dirt road at night with its headlights blasting.

When a kangaroo bounds into the road, the driver does not hesitate or slow down. Instead, he hits the animal and keeps driving with blood splattered across the windscreen.

He can be heard laughing before swerving to hit another kangaroo, apparently deliberately.

According to local media, the alleged driver denies hitting the kangaroos on purpose.

The video was shared to the Facebook page of a woman who recently posted a photo of herself with a decapitated joey in her mouth, although it has since been removed from the platform.
