Locals in Batemans Bay, a coastal beach town south of Sydney, discovered murdered animals (kangaroos) on two different roadways on Saturday, according to a report.
The kangaroos were also struck by a car, according to the report, and both culprits have been detained. They will face in court next month on charges of carelessly assaulting and murdering an animal. The suspects will have a fine of $22,000 and can face up to 5 years of imprisonment.
WIRES, a wildlife rescue organization, claimed it had taken in the “single surviving joey.” Each year, the RSPCA investigates around 50,000 animal cruelty allegations in Australia.

Kangaroos in Australia
Red Kangaroos may be found across dry Australia’s open plains. Eastern Greys may be found from Cape York to Tasmania, whereas Western Greys range from Western Australia to Victoria. Antilopine Kangaroos may be found in monsoonal tropical forests in northern Australia, while Common Wallaroos can be found across Australia, particularly on rocky outcrops.
According to the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, the Black Wallaroo is near extinction in the Northern Territory’s sandstone country. The remaining species are widespread and common, and they are classified as least concern according to local authorities.
Kangaroos are known for their leaping style of movement. Kangaroos have short hair, powerful hind legs, tiny forelimbs, large feet, and a long tail, and they all have short hair. They have sharp eyesight and great hearing. Their fur coat can be red, grey, or light to dark brown, depending on the species. Their fur coat can be red, grey, or light to dark brown, depending on the species.
Following that, European pastoralists removed increasingly heavy vegetation and established permanent water sources in dry and seasonal environments. By the late twentieth century, Australia’s kangaroo population had grown to the point that they had become a major industry.
Kangaroos have an unpredictable activity schedule; they are most active at night and during periods of low light, but they may also be found out in the open during sunshine. Kangaroos lick their forearms in hot weather to enhance heat loss through evaporation. Males use biting, kicking, and boxing to get access to females. Kangaroos employ similar tactics to defend themselves from predators. They can spar ferociously because of their nimble limbs. They may also grasp an adversary with their forepaws while swaying back on their tails and quickly lowering their massive clawed hind feet. Dogs and people have both been known to be using this method.
