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.

They should be looking more into feral pest in national parks like pigs foxes cats and rabbits they do more damage than your average roo shooter... We don't eat the native birds we don't wreck water holes we don't eat animals from the back end towards the head while they are still alive we don't eat calves and lambs as they are quiet literally being born and yes I have seen it on many occasions I think that 1080 baiting should be made illegal it is cruel and inhumane
