Man charged over alleged emu death video in Victorian town of Ouyen

A Victorian man has been arrested after horrifying footage of emus deliberately being mown down went viral on social media earlier this week.

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

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

In the video, the male driver is heard cheering as he strikes the birds on a dirt road with his auto.

The animal welfare organisation on Thursday pleaded for help to identify him and began working closely with police.

"This is f**king great", he said.
"I've got that one too... and that one." .

Texas mayor, 73, kills huge alligator she thinks ate her miniature horse
Cochran, the mayor of Livingston, Texas , told NBC News the horse had turned up missing and she suspected the alligator was the culprit.

Police said the emu killings occurred this month on a rural road in northwestern Victoria.

The 40-second clip shows the man hit at least a dozen emus, with the birds disappearing under the front of his four-wheel-drive, before he turns the camera around and films himself laughing uncontrollably.

The video appeared on social media on Wednesday evening and has since been widely shared by horrified members of the public.

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

The man is due in court on November 9.

One of the men, Joshua McConnell, posted on Facebook that he is not the man seen in the video.
