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, 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.

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 !!

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.

Sincerely..

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.....

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.

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!

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.
