Police investigation ongoing into animal cruelty incident involving wallaby in Wynyard

Police are seeking public information as part of the ongoing investigation into an act of animal cruelty towards a wallaby in the Wynyard area on Tuesday.

A post-mortem examination conducted by the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment has determined the wallaby was deceased before it was suspended from the tree.

“While it’s been determined the wallaby was deceased before it was suspended from the tree in the recreational reserve near Saunders Street, the act of suspending the wallaby from the tree does not fit with community expectations,” said Sergeant Craig Harvey.

“It’s concerning that the wallaby was left in a public place, in plain sight of members of our community, including children.”

“Anyone who has any information in relation to the person who suspended the wallaby is asked to come forward.”

Information can be provided to Wynyard Police on 6477 7267 or Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000.
