Leads Wanted on Cowardly Kangaroo Kicker

The RSPCA is still searching for any leads on the indentity of the thug. Charges could amount to a 5 year jail sentance for an adult.

Russian federal service for veterinary surveillance, Rosselkhoznadzor, said temporary bans were imposed after it found antibiotics in meat products.

How exactly are kangaroos getting full of antibiotics? These are not factory farmed animals but generally harvested (as well as you can harvest with a rifle) wild populations.
