Thank you so much for caring and helping these poor defenceless kangaroos
----------------------------------------------------------------Update #1 February 26, 2015
Today as we push to stop the roo industry inits tracks I have learnt a major UK supermarket ICELAND have decided to stock roo meat burgers YUK This obviously needs to be stopped as soon as possible
Viva have a form at : www.savethekangaroo.com/message-to-Iceland. It would also be good to write to Iceland HQ in official capacities asking them to stop selling kangaroo. They don’t have an email address, but there’s ways to contact them here: www.iceland.co.uk/contact-us.
The human at the trough again looking for more animals to add to the list of dead bodies they will consuume.

I've signed everything. It's just incredible how People who like to think they're civilized can just enjoy killing living beings. And they'll be the first to wail and gnash their teeth when they achieved extinction of the species.

I urge you to act to end the cruelty and ecological vandalism of the government’s annual program of ‘culling’ kangaroos in the Canberra Nature Park.
There is no evidence that kangaroos are causing any damage to plants or other animals in the parks, while there is abundant evidence that removing them in substantial numbers will imperil not only the kangaroos themselves but several other native species, including some threatened species.
Even if there were an environmental justification for the slaughter, it could not justify the level of cruelty involved.
Autopsy evidence shows that adults that do not die instantly from the first shot are stabbed and clubbed to death, or escape to die slowly of their wounds.
Even the survivors often injure themselves in their panic, or die on the roads trying to escape, or live to suffer the overall emotional distress and disruption to the mob’s social structure. Pouch young and young at foot are bludgeoned to death or left to starve.
Please end this inexcusable cruelty and environmental idiocy.
Despite claims by the ACT government and other environmental bodies that kangaroos and wallabies are a threat to other native species, this has never been proven by research. Kangaroos and wallabes have been in harmony with the Australian bush for 50 million years however they continue to be used as a scapegoat for drought, poor land management and the clearing of land for development.
Kangaroos and wallabies are estimated to be worth between two and five billion dollars annually in tourism revenue for Australia (Sustainable Tourism Co Operative Research Centre). The kangaroo industry however, which is decimating millions of kangaroos and their joeys annually for pet food and shoes, is worth around 200 million. How can the Australian government justify an industry that profits from the destruction of our national icon, potentially pushing it to the brink of extinction, and without ever consulting its rightful custodians- the Australian public?http://www.australiansocietyforkangaroos.com/canberra.html

Signed - than you Lenicka. I read in the Times this weekend that they are starting a contraception programme because of the strong opposition to the killing.
Help stop the killing of kangaroos in
The ACT Government's annual cull of more than 1,600 kangaroos was set to start on May 14, and last for the next three months.
However, the killing has been suspended after animal activists delayed the start of the cull after launching legal action.

I've signed everything and I could cheerfully go out and take a Club to the executives of companies who think an animal is just there to help them make a fast buck. Why doesn't someone take them off the protected list and open the hunting season on them? They're not only useless they're dangerous.

Petition signed, Lidls letter sent ~ thank you Monika
Absolutely Monika. Agree!
The form will not accept my email address - it keeps telling me to enter email over and over. So have given up at the moment.
This problem is all around the World. People who eat meat gives a %#&!*% about what they eat, where it came from and so on as long as it tastes good. Those kind of people like not to know what this animals have been so they Close their ears and then they don't have to deal with facts and maybe have to do something about it so better not knowing...
The whole meatindustri is so rutten, just think about all animls who have to travel many Days on road or sea and ending up in a hell poor souls...
In the Netherlands there is just a rapport about what is in the products that containing meat.
Well, nobody is eating what they think they are eating. Cow = horse etc.
Meat is traveling trough the whole EU.
From A to K , from Z to B and no investigation can tell where the meat came from originally, some meat travels 9 months before it was used.
So it is not a specific country problem but an EU problem.
It is one big EU scandal and they cannot handle it.
It's a meat mafia. Horses from Finland , travels to Italy , be slaughtered there and the meat travels to all the other countries and somewhere in this route it becomes a sticker 'beef'.
People are eating more and more products like kangaroo and ostrich - all from Lidl - because they think that's a clean product.
A lot of kangaroo is in catfood. I suppose in all the brands.
Oh , am I glad I do not eat meat !!!
What I cannot say about my cats.
It's a horrible struggle for me every day.
Urgent action: Use our message below to contact Lidl today!

Stop the killing of kangaroos for pet food in Victoria, Australia
Thanks Monika and Jan, most signed.
Already did these and did the most recent petitions yesterday. Thanks for sharing.
It never seems to stop Monika. Animals have no value, only if they can be used to satisfy the greed for money . Why must shoes be made from Kangaroo leather? There are other, animals friendly options now. Linda McCartney is a good example: she uses no leather, fur or animals related things in her fashion (and she is vegan, too) and her fashion looks beautiful! Okay she is selling expensive, but big companies like Adidas could easily produce and sell similar shoes / clothes cheaper for a big market! They don't care about animals ! Its to elaborate for them, they chose the easy production and if animals die, well, never mind.
This is just one example of many - for sure there are other reasons why the killing of wildlife continues but mostly its about money and the greed of humans
Can't believe it's still going on. When I lived in Australia during the 50s and 60s kangaroo Shooting sprees were the in-Thing. I drove all my friends mad by fighting the senseless killing of kangaroos tooth-and-nail. Unfortunately we didn't have the Internet then so it was just word-of-mouth, but, believe me, I mouthed off a lot and very loudly. Now we're even into the next century and we still have to fight this brutality. Humans just aren't capable of improving - guess they're too dumb.

I am horrified to hear that you are now selling kangaroo meat. It is this trade which helps drive what is currently the biggest massacre of land animals on the planet.
5.4 million kangaroos were earmarked for slaughter in 2012 (a massive increase of 1.5 million from last year). This doesnâ€™t include the baby kangaroos (joeys) that are not even used by the meat and leather industries, but are simply thrown away. An adult female kangaroo will usually have two youngsters with her: a baby kangaroo in pouch and an adolescent at foot. This slaughter is supposedly governed by guidelines. However, these guidelines advocate pulling baby joeys from their dying motherâ€™s pouch and smashing them around the head and/or decapitating them. The adolescents are meant to be shot, but many will escape the carnage and die of predation from other wild animals. For almost every female kangaroo killed to fill your freezers with kangaroo meat, two other lives will be snuffed out. Around a million baby kangaroos die each year because of the trade in kangaroo parts. There can be no justification for this.
It is also impossible to truly assess the welfare of the adults that are shot, as this is invariably done at night in the Outback. Away from the glare of public scrutiny, millions are shot every year â€“ and the Australian RSPCA has estimated that around 100,000 adults are not killed humanely and some may temporarily survive with horrific wounds, such as having their jaws shot off.
All other UK supermarkets have pledged not to sell kangaroo meat and removed it from their shelves over a decade ago. Popularising the meat, as you are doing, will simply lead to more bloodshed and drive even greater numbers of baby kangaroos to be killed.
Please follow the lead of other major businesses in the UK and pledge not to sell kangaroo meat. Until this happens, I will boycott your stores and encourage and of my friends and family to do likewise.
Signed all that were still open! I can't believe kangaroos are treated this way.
