“Should be kicked off the force”: Karl Stefanovic calls for sacking of police officer caught stoning wombat

“Should be kicked off the force”: Karl Stefanovic calls for sacking of police officer caught stoning wombat

South Australian Police have launched an investigation into a video that emerged showing one of their officers stoning a wombat.

The footage was posted to the Wombat Awareness Organisation Facebook page and it shows a disturbing scene of a man chasing the wombat down a dirt road while repeatedly throwing rocks at it.

Towards the end of the video, the wombat falls over and stops moving.

“You killed him, bro,” says the man behind the camera.

South Australian Police has confirmed the man is one of their officers and they are investigating the incident.

But Karl Stefanovic believes there’s no need for an inquiry as the evidence is cut and dry.

“Let’s save some time right here right now because I can hold an inquiry for you.

“This man should be arrested, he should be charged, and he should be kicked off the force.

“He gives the hardworking people on our force a bad name.”
