Alfords Point Bridge spans the Georges River which winds its way to the ocean just south of Sydney proper. On a normal day, it might provide a bit of shade for boaters passing underneath, or help visitors reach the beautiful Georges River National Park. But a few days ago, it became the site of something far more sinister.
Last Tuesday, while people were enjoying a relaxing time on the river, they noticed something out of place hanging from the edge of the bridge. It was as unmistakable as it was horrifying — the body of a deer dangling from a rope that had been tied to the bridge railing.
This was clearly no accident, deer just don't end up hanged. No, this was a deliberate, well thought out plan of cruelty, that took effort and serious malice. Apart from the horror of what this poor deer must have gone through, families with children also had to see the killers sick murder scene.
Imagine if the rope had broken and the deer had fallen right when unsuspecting boaters passed underneath. Whoever did this could have killed someone. Ask New South Wales law enforcement to investigate this crime of animal cruelty and reckless endangerment. Demand that they find whoever killed this helpless deer.
