Baby wombats and mothers targeted by driver: police

TEN wombats, including four feeding mothers, have been deliberately run over and killed at a camping ground in the New South Wales southern highlands, police say.

However, one of four wombat joeys has survived and appears to be healthy and free of injury.
 

Officers were called to the Bendeela camping ground near Kangaroo Valley on Saturday and found eight of the dead animals.

Another two dead wombats were found on Sunday.

Inspector Susan Charman-Horton said at least four were feeding mothers.
