Kangaroos, serious dog fighting in Perth. You are getting a really bad reputation for your inhumanity towards animals. Shame on you Australia.
share this news far and wide...thankyou.
Oh Libby..I feel SO ashamed.
So there, now you can crawl back into your little hole.
If dog fighting is happening in Perth and you are aware of them then please do the kind and respectful act and report them to the Local authorities so that they can be raided. Its never too late so please report this to stop that barbaric cruelty to dogs. Lets put an end to it if we can by reporting them.
Libby you have a duty of care to the dogs in Perth to please report dog fights to the RSPCA or to other authorities when you are aware of these despicable events. Unfortunately these sickening cowards profiting from such abhorrent repulsive activities do it well away from any decent humans view so it is very difficult to catch the vile people before these dogs are so damaged. I urge to for the sake of the dogs please report it. I agree Australia has such despicable cruelty but we have to stop them when we can.
Do you really think that we Aussies go along with dog fighting It is totally illegal and it does com up in the news now and then when those that do this are found and prosecuted and take note the people that are doing it look at where they come from
And Libby, let's not forget Live Animal Exports, to say the least......up there with "the best of 'em"!!
John Browne, why don't you just wind your neck in??? Talking of crawling back into holes, I'm wondering which one YOU managed to slither out from.....makes me shudder just to think. You don't appear to be a very nice person really.
Says you with a picture of someone. (You) riding a horse? Hypocrite much.
Please, stop kill the kangoroos,they must live our brothers in Christ to.
Yes Libby I am ashamed that someone like yoiu can put down the wonderful country that we live in. DOG FIGHTING, COCK FIGHTING and BULL FIGHTING or any animal fighting is agaisnt the law as is animal cruelty. There will always be those who break the law usually from countries where this is legal practice. If you know this is happening ring the R.SP.C.A. or the POLICE...you have heard of these organisations I take it?????GET A LIFE
Glad to sign the petition against kangaroo killing in Australia--shocking that such majestic animals are killed for their meat and skins.
Thankyou...it really is a tragic sight to see. The Joeys are often bludgeoned to death after their mum is shot... its disgusting! ...:(
This is a culling of these animals. their meat and skin will be disgarded. apparently they are in plaque proportion and need t be killed. I disagree
Oh noooooo...I find this savagery-barbaric....UNREAL.....I am sickened by this.I bet the world at large does NOT know this.....HORRIFIC!
No they are NOT in plague proportions... Government exaggeration..our Roos are disappearing quite rapidly.
I'm glad you are sickened by this Margie. But vomit in your own backdoor country....k ??
Animal welfare and animal rights does exist but humans just can't help themselves to be brutal and despicably cruel because they seem to fulfil that killing instinct that they haven't shed as yet through evolution! Animals have more intelligence than some people writing here who express their acceptance of brutal killing and have so comfortably accepted animal brutality as part of the norm. This just shows how backward some people really are even in modern times.
I think John Browne needs a bit of surgery - with a carpet cutter!! Seems his whole purpose in life is to wind people up and get them riled...... shame that that's all he can do to make his mark..... it's obvious James Ruse Agricuiltural High School didn't do much for his sensibilities.
Sorry, but even though I am very much against this horrible cruelty, there is no way I will sign anything that states: "We demand that the cruelty is stopped, and a more kinder and humane option of handling the culling (if it must happen) of these animals is undertaken."
With modern birth control options for wildlife culling is NEVER an acceptable option. Change the petition, and you will have my signature.
We the undersigned are appalled at the inhumanity that is shown towards Australian Kangaroo's and their Joeys in the Annual culling season.
We demand that the cruelty is stopped, and a more kinder and humane option of handling these animals is undertaken.
With modern birth control options for wildlife.. culling is NEVER an acceptable option.
You pay for that scheme Karin, and we'll consider it. Otherwise STFU.
Thats right, brutal culling if animals and their young is so abhorrent and is never acceptable. Modern birth control is the only acceptable method just like humans.
Australia should spend some of the $billion it earns from its tourist industry to find more civilised methods of population control of kangaroos instead of its barbaric dark age practices it has been using. Tourists visit Australia to see these very animals which you are so callously killing and beating to death. So its just fair that some of your tourism dollars is spent towards caring for all the animals humanely. Without your special animals tourists numbers won't be that good. So please...

So please act humanely because tourists may not tolerate these abhorrent killings of your wildlife. Please get researches done and treat animals humanely even if they are out of the public's view!
i'm curious: how would we manage to deliver birth control to so many animals? how is it executed? i'm completely ignorant on the subject so i'd appreciate the input. for example, my pets have been spade and neutered, but those are fairly invasive procedures and they require time to recover. would they kidnap half the kangaroo population and do the same? or is there a kangacondom.....
why stop them from breeding.. people can have as many kids as they want and no one stops them.. why is killing the only answer ever time for every thing???
If you are petitioning Julia Gillard you are wasting your time and paper but if you do send it, she has more chance oif seeing it if you send it to the Rootie Hill Football Club where she hangs out from time to time.
Australia kills a lot of animals inhumanely and they just don't care about animals you should see what they do to cattle and horses Sick "Bastards.'".
hi Jim, very sadly mate .. there is NO country on our poor Earth that can say they are humane. In every country worldwide you will find certain people committing atrocious acts of cruelty towards innocent animals. We as human beings have lost our way..:(
Yes Jim, we are sick sick sick. Have you ever seen what we do to baby frogs ?? No ?? It's horrific....horrific.
Yes Jim, Australia does have some very inhumane practices against animals as you say and I agree with the examples you gave here. It has a $billion dollar tourism industry but yet it fails to meet the standards of a developed country in their animal population control methods. Yes some slaughterhouses are so despicable etc. The sickening factory farming of animals is enough to put any decent human being off from eating meat. Although this happens elsewhere, Australia has the resources to be...

Although this happens elsewhere, Australia has the resources to be a better example to the world instead of following the sickening practices from other country. Puppy mills still flourish in Australia. So yes you have a point.
So do you eat meat Jim?
Oh why don't you just jump back into the cesspit from whence you came, John Browne, you blithering, intellectually-challenged moron - you're wasting time, space and oxygen.
Hey Jim, like i just commented to Valery, we do cull kangaroos, but you guys have the worst gun culture in the civilised world. Why is it that i rarely hear of any Americans calling for gun control. HYPOCRITES !!
My adopted country is renowned for it's ignorance towards animals.I say to all those Marksmen and to those who have no idea what end the bullet comes out of,if you want to shoot,
join the military and have fun in Afghanistan,Game? Wish I could find my adoption papers.
We as Aussies will continue to do as we please in regards to culling "nuisance" animals. You lot of soapboxers, greenies and other assorted idiots can go screw yourselves.
God I love these 5c petitions from other countries that have already trashed their own environments.
John Browne - I guarantee, Death becomes you!! The more you utter, the more like a scourge you become. If only the vitriol spewing from your lips would find its way back into your system.....and see you off. You know what they say about arseholes, only shit comes out of them!!
Is that all ya got Merthyr ???
I understand that Australia has a very big problem by having an over population of kangaroos and as a result being the farmers nightmares due to kangaroos damaging and eating all their crops. However there must be a way of putting an end to this and having organization and laws which prohibits the killing of females with her joeys and some sensibility in ways of hunting the males and avoid the cruelty in this action. So sad to hear of the way females ared killed and the joeys, hope this 1st...

We Aussies are KILLING off all our wildlife at an alarming rate. Pretty soon..it will be spot the Roo... :(
Very sad, you guys have an awesome wildlife, hope something can be done! :/
Come on out to rural Australia and you can play spot the roos to your little hearts content.
play with your mommy
I don't know why people believe everything they read It is made to sound barbaric I live in Australia Culling is necessary because of plague proportions and the destruction The culling they do and it is done under scrutiny and strict control as well as the little amount of meat is under very strict regulations As usual the Animal Rights groups are trying to make it an emotive issue and quite frankly those that donlt live here should not sign something when they do not know the real facts.
BULLSHIT...you speak utter crap. The culling of these animals is barbaric. I ask you...could YOU bludgeon a baby to death??? WELL Gerri, could you? and have YOU been to see the aftermath of the slaughter? Obviously you are NOT very compassionate..how sad!
I am not speaking utter crap and as usual it is blown out of all proportion and you have no right to say I am not a compassionate person How dare you say could I bludgeon a baby to death You don't know me How sad for you to comment on other people assuming they could be a possible muderer when this is about animal husbandry "Get a life"
Jayne Cvetanoski If you want to do something positive in this life then think of all the innocent children killed because of the lack of gun control something we do have in Australia is gun control and we don't have innocent civilians killed because of terrorists and civil wars what we do have is domestc terrorists who want to change things to their idealistic beliefs such as culling of kangaroos for reasons that there far too many and to stop them from starving to death
We need to stay on one issue here and not pull other stories that have nothing to do with animal cruelty, and certainly not decapitating or bashing the heads of baby Joeys. If money was not the issue here, you could use birth control methods to control population booms, but it is quicker, easier, and cost more effective just to kill them....
One can tell how civilized a nation really is by the way they treat their animals....Australia seems to have a long way to go with this evidence of cruelty, blatant disregaurd as well as such disrespect for the lives of these animals. Really, get a heart. What if humans were treated like this since the world is definatly overpopulated and birthcontrol is definatly not being utalized practiced though we have the option to do so, lets cull some people starting with Australia, just like you have treated these creatures....
Well now we have people that think like Nazi's
The truth hurtz.....
How about we just issue all the male kangaroos with condoms...that should stop them breeding and overpopulating, then we wouldn't need to cull them at all. Of course the other option us just let them o their thing until they reach a population that they all just stave to death horribly. Those options will work don't you think?
Signed. Stop killing kangaroos Aussies. Not to mention the dingoes! How many left in the wild I wonder? I am an Aussie and appalled at the disgusting treatment of any creature in any country! Why do we need to kill any animals at all? Sure some animals are pure carnivore but that's a balanced ecosystem for the most part (or at least until humans interfere)...humans do not need to eat meat. I don't eat meat or dairy or eggs anymore and my health is great! I rarely get sick and when I do, I...

I don't eat meat or dairy or eggs anymore and my health is great! I rarely get sick and when I do, I get better very fast. Nothing wrong with my health. Whole and raw plant food is the answer. So stop killing animals folks!
I BET ....you'r an inner city latte sucker !!!!
People must complain about these sickening practices used in Australia and report animal cruelty at all levels as its the only way we can get the communities to stop the animal abuses. People can do so much more to help make animal cruelty a serious offence.
Just because that is your opinion and philosophy doesn't mean we all have to be like you I suggest you get the real truth instead of making statements about Australia from a load of propaganda
Gerri too late we know what the Australian government is all about. Greed.
One day I thought I would go to Australia. I'm not too sure now. I feel sorry for the babies. How could you kill the mothers. Sick people to do this. Let me go to Australia and shot every inhumane person that. You all are sick there.
NO WE ARE NOT ALL sick thankyou Theresa...i am an Aussie and LOOK how much i fight for them everyday! PLEASE be careful on how you state that we are all inhumane. I FOR ONE am NOT..ok.
oh stop it idiot and don't take it personally you know who Theresa meant it for.
