Driver backed over trapped possum repeatedly while filming
THE RSPCA is searching for the people behind a horrific attack on a live possum after a video surfaced of a driver repeatedly running over the trapped animal in a large vehicle.
The animal welfare organisation received the vision on Monday from a woman who had it sent to her on picture-sharing app Snapchat.
The graphic footage shows the possum trapped beneath the wheel of a car, while the driver continues to drive and reverse over it.
One man can be seen cheering on the driver and then laughing as the butchered animal tries to escape with the back half of its body severed off.
RSPCA Queensland spokesman Michael Beatty said it was undoubtedly a case of animal cruelty.
