A horrific video showing a group of men beating kangaroos to death has been discovered by police.

One of the animals was also reportedly set on fire.

The video shows two incidents of animal cruelty, thought to have occurred in Western Australia, on Saturday 19 May and Saturday 16 June
‘It’s graphic, it’s disturbing, it’s cowardly. In my 17 years of policing it’s one of the most disturbing things I’ve seen hands down,’ Senior Constable Paul Giuffre told 9News.
The videos were discovered on a Perth man’s phone after he was arrested on an unrelated matter.
Police are asking the public for help to try and identify three men seen in the footage, who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.
The three men are between 20-30 years of age, fair skinned, and medium to solid builds. The first man has dark facial hair, was wearing a black beanie with a white emblem on the front, and a black hooded top.
The second has short brown hair, is clean shaven and was wearing a black hooded top. While the third man has facial hair and was wearing a dark coloured top with an emblem on the front.
The footage was released by officers just days after a man in South Australia filmed himself laughing while running down up to 10 emus in a truck on a country road.
