UPDATE: A local wildlife rescuer has just one word for the arrest of a man over the footage of animal cruelty towards a kangaroo - "good".
Murray River WIRES branch spokeswoman Hazel Cook said the footage was "really hard to watch".
"He was quite enjoying himself in the video and that poor kangaroo had no chance because I believe he had a broken leg - he was defenceless," she told The Border Mail.
"We can understand people getting cranky but the human race should be the more intelligent of the species in this case."
Ms Cook said the timing of the video being made public, is what "really hit home for a lot of people".
"Australian wildlife are in the spotlight after all the devastating bushfires," she said.
"It is very emotionally strong at the moment which is why I think there was such an outpouring of disgust towards the video online.
"He is a silly young man and I am glad the police have charged him."
