The possum torturers of Hughes

By johnboy 18 December 2008 37

The RSPCA has broadcast its horror after a live scalped possum was found in Kitchener Street, Hughes and brought into them.

The little fellow had to be euthanised.

Shame Hughes, Shame!

Aubergine,

yep, already donate. And all my furries are RSPCA refugees 😉

My family does that.

Aubergine. Good on you. Come on taxpayers, out with the wallet. Mr Evil has shown the way.

“Do something constructive instead – donate to the RSPCA.”

If the person or people who did this are caught I shall do prison time for what I will do to them.

Sick Bastards! Just a note of caution, possums, look cute and cuddly, but they are wild animals, they can do you some serious injury if you try and handle them. I once met an old lady who had one fall into her bathroom through the ceiling, it wrecked her house, she tried to pick it up and put it out like a pussy cat. Big mistake, she was badly bitten and scratched. They are also protected in Australia (and why not?) They have more right to exist than the low-life who did what he / she did in the article IMO.

Hoping that the scum who do these things die horribly is not very effective. Do something constructive instead – donate to the RSPCA.

Go to http://www.rspca-act.org.au/pages/donationform.asp

or just call in to their place off Cotter Rd, Weston. Next time you’re driving home down the Parkway take a detour – it’ll only take a few minutes.

If you have old blankets, towels, etc, chuck them in a bag and drop them off to help keep the animals cosy.

They also sell loads of pet food and supplies, open every day.

On WIN now.

Sorry JB, but i hope the f***ers get killed in a seriously hideous way…

This sort of person will eventually ‘graduate’ to harming humans if they haven’t already

Thumper 5:38 pm 18 Dec 08

Seriously, this sort of person needs to be put behind bars forever.

While it’s at the top of your mind, punch these numbers into you mobile and/or stick them on a Postit Note in your glovebox

For injured wildlife please contact these RSPCA numbers:
02 6287 8113 (Business Hours)
0413 495 031 (After Hours)
Animals found in NSW: Wildcare on 6299 1966

When you see an injured animal you won’t want to be faffing around looking for the numbers.

Very sound advice poptop, my thanks!

Thanks for people’s thoughts and interest in this story. I’m CEO over at RSPCA, I’ve seen the photos and the possum, incisions are neat and tidy and symmetrical, almost surgical. What was done was done by a (low life scum) human unless there are some pretty handy knife wielding cats out there!!

Jesus, why must we share the world with such retarded arseholes?

Why would someone do that? They must be heartness to be able to inflict that much pain on an animal and want it to suffer like that.

God it’s made me want to have a bit of a cry thinking about it.

Absolutely horrible!

Possums have trouble in the day. We had a big one once manage to wind itself up in the bamboo. We cut bamboo until we could get it out, and it staggered around a bit and then tried to climb up my leg! We put it in a dark spot in the shed with some water, and by nightfall it had decamped.

Thank God for the RSPCA.

Possums are nocturnal so the chances of it hanging around any type of machinery during the day are pretty slim aren’t they?
