    Kiwi accused of Rottnest quokka cruelty

    Another man has been charged after a quokka was captured and thrown into water from a jetty on WA's Rottnest Island.


    A 38-year-old man who allegedly captured a quokka before his friend threw it from a jetty has been fined and evicted from Western Australia's Rottnest Island.

    The Queensland man was fined $200 by the Rottnest Island Authority.

    A 37-year-old New Zealand man was criminally charged with animal cruelty after he allegedly threw the quokka into water.

    He faced Perth Magistrates Court on Saturday.

    The quokka was able to swim to shore.
