RSPCA WA Inspectors are investigating the incident relating to the death of the kookaburra at the Parkerville Tavern. Media comments by RSPCA WA stating that Inspectors could not prosecute with respect the situation were premature. Once the circumstances of the incident are fully investigated the case will be assessed, as with all other animal cruelty investigations, in accordance with RSPCA WA’s Compliance, Enforcement and Prosecution Policy.

As this is an ongoing investigation RSPCA WA will not comment further with respect to the details of this case.
