Australia YOU SUCK! You couldn't give me a free trip there.You are the most inhumane society I have ever seen.You treat all your animals terrible and you should be ashamed of yourselves! Real disgrace Aussies!
im an Aussie...and i second your sentiments...sadly..:(
Wait.....what about CHINA.....and all those countries....I don't think Austrailans eat cat.dogs...and everything else!
Australia has an annual per-capita meat consumption that is over twice that of China (about 105 kg for Australia and about 40 kg for China from what I can remember reading in newspapers over the years). The per-capita ecological impact (or "footprint") for Australia is alse very high, as is the amount of forests that have been destroyed, the high rate of extinction of species and the oppression and genocide of Aboriginals.

Back to the Gulag for you Sime.
Do you live here? No. You have no idea.
no but given half the chance they would. how about aussie culling. most are desendants of criminals anyway
Really Valery??? We don't want people with an attitude like that here either, glad you opted to stay home. We certainly don't treat animals as badly as many other countries....eg , all the footage of Chinese skinning animals alive ffs! I come from a farming background, have seen mulesing, kangaroo culling and many other so called atrocities.....yes this country is guilty of some, as is any other - but seriously, unless you have actually seen it, don't believe the hype, a lot of it really is highly exagerated to get your attention.
Oh, and one more point....I suppose you would rather see these kangaroos die slowly of starvation - sometimes a cull is necessary, as over here we have what is called "a drought", and THAT is truly a cruel and inhumane way to die. Or are you people going to pay billions to bring a heap of food and water over to sustain them during a drought???
I am not sure what is meant by "Back to the Gulag for you Sime". If it is referring to me returning to m country of origin: now I am able to to animal rights activism whilst at work, which is better than that treadmill that I was stuck in whilst in Australia with never enough time in the day, the bullying at school in which teachers blamed the victim, not being allowed to read an interesting zoology book during an English class aimed at the dumbest students ... that was more like Gulag to me!
Shut up ya fuckin spastic. Like whatever race you are doesn't do the same. Eat a dick, and some roo
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
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 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 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.
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....
Australia! What a terrible nation you are! How the hell can you guys kill such lovely innocent creatures? Shameless barbarians! I am so glad you b****ds are getting thrashed by us in cricket these days! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
Ever met a wild kangaroo up close and personal? By your "lovely innocent creatures" remark I would guess not. When you actually do, you may want to come back and amend your comment...IF your still alive that is.
When I had my store on Rt. 66 in AZ I had some farmers from Australia in there and they told me they killed the kangaroos and fed their legs to their dogs because they were such pests to the crops. I almost got sick thinking of it. All animals have a soul and when I read of the way they kill the mothers with babies in their pouches I wanted to throw up. Out the window went my desire to g on a trip to Australia. Shame on you.
I would have told them to go get their provisions elsewhere - you know, "Right of Admission Reserved".
You are getting a really bad reputation in Europe, for your inhumanity towards animals. Bad for you Australia.....
Bad for EVERY country in the world, including our own, with their inhumanity and sadistic, cruel treatment and abuse of animals. The human race is failing almost on every point.
Tonight...I go kangaroo culling!
Whoopie-doos Bruce......THAT should make you feel like a real man at last eh? I suppose SOMETHING has to.....sure can't be the little pecker in your shorts, if there is one there at all, and it certainly can't be your character, which from reading all of your inanities through this page, would be something we'd have to search for on a slide under a microscope.
Hasn't Australia done enough slaughtering of its Native Animals. Time to stop!
No, not enough yet. We need to keep on slaughtering.
