Shocking footage has emerged of a farmer chasing after a kangaroo before running it over with a tractor harrow.

‘This big c***! He’s mine! He’s f***ing mine!,’ the driver yells as the kangaroos is chased down.
When the animal was caught and killed in the harrow the driver shouts ‘boomfa!’ in celebration.
Animal Justice Party MP Andy Meddick has said the incident is a ‘disgrace’ and called on the Victorian Government to do more to protect animals.
‘I am calling on Minister Lily D’Ambrosio to ensure this man is made an example of. He needs the book thrown at him,’ he said.

‘The Victorian Government has created a culture of disrespect to native animals by allowing their slaughter for fun and under so-called harvesting programs.’
Environment Minister Lily D’Ambrosio replied saying she was ‘deeply concerned by this report’.
She said an investigation had been launched while the Wildlife Act was being reviewed to ensure people who attacked wildlife were appropriately dealt with.

‘We are reviewing the Wildlife Act to ensure it is fit for purpose and deals appropriately with people who senselessly attack our wildlife.’
