Australia barbarically kills over a million kangaroos annually- a massacre that is so big that it has been labeled the largest killing of land based wildlife in the world.

Sue Clayton (8)
Tuesday July 9, 2013, 10:35 pm
People from countries other than Australia must watch what they say on this one. I've signed petitions from many countries (mostly America) where people go out hunting all the time. The ENTIRE world needs to BAN HUNTING of animals. The Kangaroo is our National Animal and the Dreaming Animal of many Indigenous people. The only reason anyone should be permitted to kill any animal is if they're stuck out in the bush/desert/wilderness without food and protection from the elements.
 

Leslene Dunn (74)

Noted and signed - absolutely sickening what we do. I commented on a news article the other day - a 15 year old girl was cleaning her hunting rifle after going on a hunt with her father and it went off and killed her! Needless to say I commented and said - that's what you get when you hunt innocent and defenceless animals - well, I was bombarded from all sides saying I am cruel and I am an idiot to have said that etc etc, but it doesn't change the fact that hunters and poachers are the scourge of this earth and that is exactly what I wish to happen to all of them.

I signed your petition after reading the article. It is so sad I know Australia can do better. If there is an overpopulation, than have a controled hunt only the older ones with out young joey's. But how do we know if there is an overpopulation,? Do they do a count every year like with the aligators and Croc's?

IF and it is a big if. There is a modicum of truth in this article it certainly isn't news here. Yes there is kangaroo meat on sale, alongside the lamb, pork ,and beef. Yes, if you search hard you can find kangaroo hide shoes, if you are willing to pay the exceedingly high price for them. As for the hordes of shooters killing willy nilly, to my knowledge the few professional shooters still operating are having a tough time., with a very distresses market. As for not head shooting I can assure you it is not only a sense of pride but an economic necessity to head shoot. This alone causes far less distress than any abattoir killing, and anything less means a reduced worth. On my small property alone the marsupials are in plague numbers. No I do not shoot nor allow others to do so. Well occasionally I fire a SHOTGUN well away from them when they feel my garden bed is preferable to the rest of the place, when I walk to wards them they ignore me, until maybe a dozen feet away, so they have no fear of me. So let's get some honesty in this article. Yes culling does happen but not on this emotive and exaggerated scale. I would be more impressed if an attack was being nmade on the plight oif billiions of caged and shed housed poultry. Mine run free.
