WARNING, GRAPHIC CONTENT: North Queensland residents have been left outraged after a picture emerged of an echidna impaled on a roadside post.
Kim Williamson, a Townsville resident, posted a picture on Facebook of the animal impaled on roadside post at North Shore Road near Bushland Beach on Saturday.
She wrote she wants to find the person or people responsible, and claims someone picked up the “poor, defenceless animal” and killed it.
“It has died a horrible death trying to get itself off,” Ms Williamson wrote.
“I took her down to a North Shore vet to be reported.”
She added she wants justice for the animal.
