Hoppers grilled at busy reserve

`A couple of paws and blood on rocks is all that remains of wallabies barbecued at East Point Reserve.

Darwin City Council rangers discovered the remains of five wallabies barbecued at the popular tourist spot during the past week.

The wallabies had been beaten to death with rocks and smoked with gum leaves on the fire.

Darwin City Council chief executive Allan McGill said police and Parks and Wildlife had been notified of the offences.

“It’s a bit unusual,” he said.’
