I find it totally incomprehensible that the Australian Government can allow it's most iconic and internationally loved animal to be slaughtered for profit. Kangaroos and Australia go together hand in glove. If you say goodbye to your kangaroo, you say goodbye to your tourism industry. These animals are the most unique animal on the planet, gentle, intelligent and with a strong family structure. The slaughter of these beautiful creatures goes against everything which is sacred.

Carole I can't support this. There are sound ecological and health reasons for eating kangaroos, and many species of Kangaroo which are not endangered and are in fact over-breeding in many parts of Australia. http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2010/02/08/1265477561439.html

Well then do not support it but why bring feral animals into this country that do not belong here like the cows and sheep and horses all hoofed animals when kangaroos are a natural for this environment they belong here the kangaroos so its all upside down kangaroos should be left alone to breed

These animals are being slaughtered in the millions. They are beuatiful animals who live in family groups mpore civilised than humans at times. They love, they feel, they care. Killing them is just so wrong.

Every animal should receive love, care and RESPECT - and be able to live in an environment that is suited to their specific needs - away from selfish, thoughtless, greedy humans. God bless ALL animals! xo xo xo xo xo xo.

I have taken an identical pledge in the past and I now refuse to take part in pledges because they are USELESS. This is because I have experience in which people pledge to "sign" a petition, but when I check the petition, it turns out that they have not "signed". Some people might think that by taking a pledge that they have "signed" the petition. Another "favourite" is when people "like" a petition on Facebook... but do not "sign" it! Whoever makes these stupid pledges appears to be...

Whoever makes these stupid pledges appears to be hijacking animal rights activists into running on a useless treadmill instead of taking part in productive activism (such as petitions and protests).

If you have not already done so, please "sign" these two petitions:

1. To the Australian Senate: www.gopetition.com/petitions/kangaroo-extinction/sign.html.

2. To the European Union: www.change.org/petitions/call-for-support-to-ban-kangaroo-products-in-eu?organization=awpc.

I will be completely honest here... I have shot roo's alot if my family still shoot roo's for a living, this industry puts food on tables for families. I have not met one harvester that would like to see the last roo shot and I can tell you all right now there is still alot of kangaroos around. We have closed seasons to allow for breeding as the market drops... The thing that really annoys me is that people comment and say its wrong when really they have no idea of what actually happens......

Now I am a man of conservation I have lived in the bush my entire life and I have seen things nobody should have to see. I have seen roo's entire mobs of kangaroos starving to death because of extremely high numbers and not enough feed, stations over stocking land and I have even seen roo's die of dehydration and starvation in times of drought. The next part of my opinion is not going to sound very good at all and I'm sorry if it offends people but it comes down to this continued above...
