The koala may have been alive when it was "cruelly attached" to the post of a wooden shelter using building screws, though it was dead when found on Wednesday, said Koala Rescue Queensland in a Facebook post accompanying a picture of the animal.

Speaking to the ABC, Koala Rerscue Queensland president Murray Chambers says he has never seen something so cruel be done to a koala.

The perpetrator could be charged with animal cruelty if caught, animal welfare charity RSPCA said.

Mr Chambers said the koala may have been struck by a auto.

Beatty confirmed the RSPCA had taken custody of the body, which would be taken to the organisation's animal care campus at Wacol for an autopsy to be performed, hopefully on Thursday afternoon.

Koala rescuers were left horrified after the dead koala was reportedly found.

One commentator on the Koala Recue Queensland Inc (KRQLD) Facebook page said: "Loved to see the culprits screwed to a pole through their *****!" Animal rescue workers yesterday found this little guy with his arms and legs attached to a pole with building screws.

Meanwhile, the RSPCA is expecting to conduct a necropsy on the koala and police may investigate when results come, possibly by Friday.

Ray's twin brother Murray, a fellow rescuer, said he first heard about the koala through a woman who called anxious because she had seen blood near the animal, which she thought was still alive and clinging to the pole of its own volition.

A SICKENING photo of a dead koala which was apparently nailed to a wooden post while alive has sparked outrage.

"We've had koalas shot a few times".

It is not yet known how the koala died.

"You know, I mean, what's wrong with society?"

"The culprit even put gum leaves next to the koala ... just makes you feel sick in the guts". Investigators are not sure of the cause of the death.

Queensland Police and the RSPCA Queensland have been contacted for comment.
