THE KILLING FIELD

WINNER, Our Impact

KANGAROO

MACROPODIDAE

Despite the fact that many native animals are much more active between dusk and dawn, sadly inflexible speed limits of up to 110km/h don’t seem to take this into consideration. This kangaroo was killed and then moved off road by the truck driver who hit it. It was then moved back onto the same road nearer to the sign for effect.
