WARNING: DISTRESSING CONTENT The screeching animal was left to bleed to death after the sickening attack in New South Wales, Australia
Horrific footage has emerged of a man stabbing a kangaroo in the neck 18 times.
The screeching animal was left to bleed to death after the sickening attack in New South Wales, Australia.
The man approached the animal, who is lying on the grass with an injured leg, as his laughing friend filmed on his phone.
The kangaroo kicks out at him several times in self-defence as he tries to slide away down the hillside in the Australian bush.
But the man manages to grab hold of the snarling marsupial by its tail before stamping on it to hold it in place.
He then begins stabbing it repeatedly until it finally went limp and stopped crying out in pain.
The video, which has been circulating on Chinese social media this week, shows him crouching next to the lifeless body like a hunter bragging about a kill.
The New South Wales RSPCA told Yahoo 7 News today that it was investigating the incident.
They were alerted to footage after a complaint from a member of the public.
It is not known exactly where or when the footage was filmed.
