DON'T ALLOW VICTORIA TO BECOME A KILLING FIELD FOR KANGAROOS


The commercial slaughter of Kangaroos was banned in 1982 by the Cain Government but it's reintroduction was raised again in 2002 when the Bracks Government presided and was fully investigated by the Environmental and Natural Resources Committee of Parliament (ENRC). It was considered unsustainable then due to inadequate numbers of kangaroos, and it's unsustainable now.
Not only is this industry unsustainable and un-Australian but it would bring danger into our bushland where recreational visitors should be safe.
The industry is known for its inhumane treatment of Kangaroos from misfired shots, orphaned young, stress on family mobs through lights and noise, cruel disposal of Joeys and the compromisation of the genetic integrity of the gene pool.
