Two men charged after kangaroo dragged through town in Goulburn

Two men have been charged after a kangaroo was allegedly attached to the back of a vehicle and driven through Goulburn this week, NSW Police say.

Officers from The Hume Local Area Command located the animal at the intersection of Auburn and Montague streets about 11.40pm on Tuesday (26 June 2016).

Police were told that the kangaroo was allegedly attached to the back of a green Nissan Pulsar and driven through the township of Goulburn before two occupants of the car cut the animal free and the car fled.

Following investigations, on Thursday 30 June 2016, court attendance notices were issued to two men – aged 21 and 20 – for offensive behaviour.

Both men will appear at Goulburn Local Court on Wednesday 13 July 2016.

Two teenagers – a 17-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl – will be dealt with under the provisions of the Young Offenders Act.

Police would like to thank the public and the media for their assistance in this matter.
