10 wallabies, and they weren't playing soccer

10 wallabies have been found slaughtered at a soccer oval at White Rock, South Cairns.

Many of the wallabies had joeys in their pouches. It is believed the wallabies were killed by uncontrolled dogs from neighboring homes.

So far, no witnesses have come forward.

Local laws officers from Cairns Regional Council are keen to hear any information. Telephone 4044 3044.

I don't have a dog, but I do have two small children. Since I came to the Cairns area a few months ago I noticed how many people let their dogs unattended and off-leash outside of their homes. I wonder how many incidents with dogs attacking kids have happened and will happen in the future. I hope people notify the policy or council if they see dogs roaming their neighborhoods. This is really anti social: dogs belong on leash or into the backyards.
