One kangaroo has been killed, and another injured after people in South China threw rocks at the animals in an attempt to “make it jump.”
According to “China Daily”, the incidents occurred a few days apart and resulted in the death of a 12-year-old female after she was hit by a sharp stone that injured her left foot. An autopsy report showed the kangaroo had a fist-sized blood clot near the kidney. A zoo employee believes that the kangaroo died of excessive blood loss in the kidney.
The second victim was a five-year-old male who was injured but is expected to make a full recovery.
