Animal cruelty: Koalas among pile of slaughtered animals found in Brisbane park

A

A decapitated koala was among a pile of slaughtered animals discovered dumped in a Brisbane park.

Almost 20 dead animals were discovered at Toowong’s Anzac Park including a border collie, cat, possum and guinea pigs.

Council workers made the shocking discovery on Thursday evening at the leafy park on Brisbane’s northside.

It was reported some of the dead animals were inside plastic bags.

Two large drums were also left at the scene and were cleared of containing dangerous substances after being tested.

The Queensland Police and RSPCA are investigating the incident to examine how the animals were killed and how they came to be left in the park.

The animal’s remains were sent to the RSPCA for testing.

“Police with the assistance of the RSPCA are investigating the location of a number of deceased animals,” Queensland Police said in a statement.

“Officers were called to a location on Wool Street after the animals, including koalas and dogs, were discovered on a grass verge.

“Investigations are underway into the cause of death and the circumstances leading up to them being left.”

The scene was so troubling the council officers who made the discovery have been offered counselling, Brisbane mayor Adrian Schrinner said as he appealed to the community for information.

“This is a sick act. I’m saddened, disturbed and appalled at what’s occurred here,” Mr Schrinner said on Twitter.

“It’s now a matter for (Queensland Police) who I hope will find the culprits so our courts can deal with them.”
