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.
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.
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...

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.
Killing Kangaroos including Babies , that's SICK!
TAN BELLA AUSTRALIA, NO PUEDO CREER LO QUE ESTAN HACIENDO SU PUEBLO. BASTA DE ASESINAR ESO MAJESTUOSOS ANIMALES.
Kangaroo culling, Australia's Dirty Secret!
Dirty and SICK!!!
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.
SIGNE **PTG **.
Dites Australie de cesser de tuer kangourous!
This is extremely sad:(
Oh boo hoo hoo.
Turdy little knuckle-dragging bastard, you just won't shut the f~ck up, will you!! Perhaps someone should do it FOR you - you probably haven't a clue!!
