Hunt for men who beat, tortured kangaroos

POLICE are searching for three men who filmed themselves torturing and killing two kangaroos.

Videos show two kangaroos being hit with men wearing knuckle-dusters and being stabbed in the head and neck, according to Nine News.

One of the animals may also have been burned. The videos were found on the phone of a Perth man who was arrested for an unrelated matter.

Detectives in Joondalup, Western Australia have released images of the men and believe the attacks happened on two dates this year: Saturday, 19 May and Saturday, 16 June.

It's believed the attacks took place in Western Australia but police are not certain of the location.

One of the men in the images has already been identified (his face has been pixilated) but police are looking to identify the remaining three men in the images.
