Man Charged With Animal Cruelty Offences After Emu Video Surfaces Online

Man Charged With Animal Cruelty Offences After Emu Video Surfaces Online”

The man in question allegedly deleted his social media accounts this week after his disturbing video went viral, but the Daily Mail says it has spoken to an ex-girlfriend who says the man went "off the rails" following a breakup.

A man filmed himself behind the wheel of a white 4WD, laughing hysterically while deliberately mowing down multiple emus on an unidentified outback road.

The man can be heard laughing and cheering as he ploughed full speed into the terrified birds, counting as he mowed them down one-by-one.

The vehicle runs over about half a dozen of them, with the driver counting along and laughing.

About 20 seconds later, the video shows the auto approaching a mob of emus which are running away from the vehicle.

"This is f**king great", he said.

Police in Victoria said the 20-year-old man faces several charges of animal cruelty, destruction of protected wildlife and traffic violations.

Police said the footage, which shows the driver's face, was filmed in Cowangie, a town about 500km (300 miles) north-west of Melbourne.

"I thought they would get out the way but nah, they just stayed there", MacDonald told Channel 7.

The video, which was viewed thousands of times, drew outrage from social media users.

He has also been charged with using his mobile phone while driving, as well as speeding.

The suspect is to appear in court on November 9.

Three possible suspects had been identified in South Australia, NSW and Victoria by the RSPCA as the organisation issued a national plea to find the man.

"Peace of s**t this bloke!"
