Man flees af­ter bird kill in pub

Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWS -

A MAN who al­legedly tore the head off a kook­aburra at a Perth pub in front of hor­ri­fied chil­dren is yet to be charged, but his lawyer claims he has re­ceived death threats and has been forced to flee the coun­try.

The man was at the Park­erville Tav­ern this month when he al­legedly grabbed Kevin — a cheeky kook­aburra known for steal­ing food — and pulled the bird’s head off. The man’s lawyer said his client had since been the vic­tim of a “par­tic­u­larly vile and vi­cious” on­line vig­i­lante cam­paign.
