Dead Koala Screwed to Pole in Australia Park Sparks Outrage

Dead Koala Screwed to Pole in Australia Park Sparks Outrage

This picture was later posted to The Koala Rescue Facebook page in a bid to call on the public for any information surrounding who would commit such a horrific act.

The RSPCA will conduct an autopsy on Thursday to determine whether a koala was dead prior to being attached to the pole.

Koala Rescue Queensland found the dead animal at Brooloo Park Lookout, near Gympie, on Wednesday after receiving reports of a koala scaling a gazebo.

Queensland municipal workers found the koala matted with blood and screwed through its paws to a wooden park shelter on Wednesday.

The post, which was shared more than 1,000 times, sparked outrage on social media with some calling the act "disgusting" and "beyond evil".

"Police are now investigating the matter", Senior Sergeant Pierre Senekal, at nearby Kenilworth, told Reuters on Thursday.

The RSPCA has requested an autopsy as part of an investigation, spokesman Michael Beattie said.

It was discovered that the animal had signs of head trauma, but the cause of death is unknown.

He said it was "incredibly disturbing" and the offenders could be prosecuted.

KRQ president Murray Chambers said he thought he was hearing things when told about the incident.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) has warned that the criminal responsible could face animal cruelty charges, reported the BBC. "We've had them deliberately run over, but this is the first time some nutcase has actually screwed a koala to a building", he told broadcaster ABC.

"I've been doing this job for 10 years and I've never seen anything like it".

"At this stage we don't know ... we need to try and find this out", he said.

"My gut feeling is that it was hit but why would you screw a koala to a wooden structure?" he said.
