A Chinese student will be convicted of killing an echidna by throwing stones at it and throwing it on a campus of the University of Brisbane.
Zhenbo Gao, 24, is accused of inflicting a painful death on the animal at Griffith University in Nathan in May of last year.
Gao was reportedly caught by campus guards flipping about the lifeless echidna at 10.30 am, according to a statement of facts.
A Chinese student will be convicted of killing an echidna (file photo) by throwing stones at it and throwing it on a campus of the University of Brisbane.
He later told RSPCA researchers that he was curious about the echidna when he met him and wanted to take him home.
He said he had thrown it to see if it would handle the fall before he threw stones on it to move it.
An autopsy revealed that the echidna, a young adult, had broken shafts, bleeding around the skull and extensive bruises.
& # 39; The findings of the autopsy indicate that the echidna died from bone trauma and would have endured significant pain and suffering during the trial, as well as fear and terror, & # 39 ;, the facts state.
Gao, a business student, will face the Holland Park Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
