A rescue wallaby has been shot with a bow and arrow in the state’s south.

Carley the wallaby was looked after by volunteers when she was a joey, after her mother was killed. Now she’s back in care after being shot with a training arrow, which was lodged beneath her spine for 3 – 4 days before Carley was found.

Hunting animals with a bow and arrow is illegal in Tasmania.

Kristy Alger, a spokesperson for Animal Liberation Tasmania, speaks to Brian Carlton about the incident and gives an update on Carley’s welfare.
