The zoo’s CCTV footage shows that the female kangaroo was hit by several stones in March, which hurt her left foot severely.
Unfortunately, the female kangaroo died the next day because of excessive bleeding in kidneys, which staff believed was caused by the stones. Chen said that they found a fist-sized blood clot near the animal’s kidney after dissecting.
A few days later after the female kangaroo died, zoo staff found tourists throwing bricks into the kangaroo enclosure again, resulting in a male kangaroo getting minor wounds.
There are only three kangaroos left at the zoo’s enclosure.
