In a quiet move, while Victorians were distracted by the Xmas holiday period, the Andrews Labor Government authorised the sale of wild kangaroo meat for human consumption.
Kangaroos are one of Australia’s most iconic, loved and unique animals. They are also the victims of the largest commercial slaughter of land-based wildlife on the planet and in 2021 it’s estimated that 192,000 kangaroos are to be killed under programs authorised by the Victorian Government
Joeys left orphaned will be bludgeoned - and right now, it is completely legal.
This is an expansion beyond the government's cruel program to kill kangaroos for pet food - and we have to do all we can to fight it!
