THE RSPCA will investigate the brutal killing of a baby goat on a North Queensland island after the youths responsible were caught in the act on camera.
The senseless attack occurred on Curacoa Island, which forms part of the Palm Island group, and has left the RSPCA and the island’s mayor outraged.
A Townsville woman, who asked to remain anonymous, told the Townsville Bulletin she was sailing with friends from the Sunshine Coast at the weekend when she saw the incident.
The woman said the attack left her “sick to the stomach” but she did not try to intervene because she thought the goat’s fate was sealed and she feared for her own safety.
She said she heard the goat “letting out sickening bleats of unimaginable pain” during the beating and, after each thud, she could here the children laughing.
The woman said that before the goat was bludgeoned to death, the children had just killed an adult goat in the same way. “This was the most disgraceful act of cruelty I have ever witnessed,” she said.
