    'Sick' gang kills hundreds of kangaroos, wallabies in Tolosa Park

    'Sick' gang kills hundreds of kangaroos, wallabies in Tolosa Park

    POLICE are hunting a gang of killers after the ruthless slaughter of more than 100 kangaroos and wallabies at one of Hobart's most popular parks.

    Tolosa Park ranger Barry Hosking made the grisly discovery earlier this week, The Mercury reported.

    "I open the gate and the crows alert me to where the carcasses are," Mr Hosking said.

    "Whoever is killing the animals is doing their business under the cover of darkness. It is sick.

    "There are hundreds of kangaroos in the bush here at night. But why would you want to kill them just for the sake of it?"

    Glenorchy police inspector John Arnold yesterday said they were closing in on whoever has killed the marsupials near the Glenorchy tip and within Tolosa Park over the past few weeks.

    "We are not ruling out the use of firearms but it is also apparent that dogs are being used to entrap the animals," Insp Arnold said.

    "They are then killed or later die of capture myopathy being frightened to death."
    Some of kangaroos have been clubbed to death.

    Others have dog bites and some have been shot.

    "We believe they are being rounded up with dogs and clubbed to death, by either a group of people or an individual with a lot of dogs," Insp Arnold said.

    "It's more likely to be a group. The kangaroos are quite tame so it's easy to get within close proximity of them."

    RSPCA Tasmania president Paul Swiatkowski hopes the culprits are caught soon.

    "This is aggravated cruelty and serial slaughter over a period of time.

    Those responsible need to face justice," Dr Swiatkowski said.

    Mr Hosking said the dead animals he finds are X-rayed by a vet to see if there are bullets in the carcasses.

    Anyone with information about the death of the animals is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

    I shot a wombat in Waragul south of Melbourne once, is that allowed? Awesome shot - right in the asshole and out through the stomach.

    the only time i shot any animals was to either eat them or cull, never for enjoyment

    i hope they catch these grubs who are doing this crap and lock em up for a good long stretch

    I gave up killing things I didn't eat and went to target shooting as a sport after having to cull Wallaroos around Gunnedah . I had to kill the wounded with a trenching tool and use my boot to crush the Joeys heads - it had to be done but it gave me no pleasure.
    Roos are easy to corner in a fenced paddock where the fence backs onto a hill , roos can jump over a fence down a hill but cannot jump over a fence UP the hill - thats when you hip shoot them with small calibre ( cheap) ammunition and finish them off by hand , maybe these apologies for life are doing something similar?

    Every now and again you hear about these sickening incidents in Oz. There was one in the pet enclosure at the Adelaide Zoo some years back. Teenagers.

    If you can engage in this sort of wanton cruelty to animals, you can murder a human too. There is a clearly defined correlation between those that were sadistic to animals when they were young, and become murderers as adults. Much though I would like to cleanse the Earth of scum like this by just shooting them- for the betterment of mankind- I suppose a long prison sentence will have to do. I hope they leave no stone unturned to catch this Filth.
