    Driver charged with wombat hit-and-runs

    A man has been charged with running over and killing 12 wombats on a road in a national park. Bob Conroy of the National Parks and Wildlife Service says the killings were discovered on January 28 and did not appear to be random.

    "My understanding is that they were targeted and then run over a number of times," he said. "It's quite a callous act of cruelty and we're quite horrified."

    The bodies of the slow-moving animals were scattered along the Wolgan Road heading to Wallerawang, 200 kilometres west of Sydney.

    Police say a 46-year-old man was charged on Thursday with the deaths at Wollemi National Park. "He has been charged with aggravated cruelty to animals, cruelty and harm to native fauna," police said in a statement.

    The man is due to appear in court on March 6.
