Teens charged over Australia kangaroo deaths

SYDNEY (AFP) – Two teenagers were charged yesterday over an alleged attack that left 14 kangaroos dead on Australia’s east coast in an act labelled “tragic and senseless” by animal rescuers.

The pair of 17-year-old boys were arrested after locals discovered the dead eastern grey kangaroos, including two joeys, near Batemans Bay, about four hours drive south of Sydney on Saturday morning, police said.
