Video footage of an off-duty police officer stoning a wombat, and possibly killing it, is being investigated, South Australia Police have announced.The video was posted on Facebook and shows a shirtless man repeatedly throwing rocks at a wombat as it tries to run away.
Encouraged by the person filming, the man hits the wombat in the head several times before it rolls over.
Seems to be our outraged day today:
As with the koala, the wombat is not domesticated, it’s wild. But killing it for sport I just have no words for. I did meet a womby late one night when he knocked down the side of our tent on the way to his feeding place. Our food had been trashed, we discovered next morning.
My view was more fool us.
