The amazing jumping kangaroo

By b2 - 21 May 2008 24

Check out this photo from the Gulf Times off a kangaroo jumping for escape

Personally I’ve never seen a roo jump that high. Maybe the dodgy Belconnen Naval Site did some weird experiments on the roos which is the real reason as to why they have to be killed…?

What’s Your opinion?

van chook, enjoy your fatty, greasy Porky Pig.

Believe it or not, I’m an animal lover, and I would do anything to move those kangaroos without killing them. I was merely making the point that sometimes people protest against killing animals, and then go home to a nice big juicy steak. I know, I know, simplistic, but a point nevertheless.

Oh, and yes, I eat steak, but I don’t protest.

Tha, tha, tha, tha, tha, tha, tha, That’s All Folks!

A bit simplistic, CR. We are a carnivorous being (although like most things I’m sure there is evidence to indicate otherwise as well) so we farm meat to fulfil our dietary choices. And in most cases it is far more humane than how other carnivores get their meat source in the wild – picture a pack of humans running after a cow and ripping it to bits with their teeth and nails while it was still alive?

I’m no mind reader, but I’d say that some of these people (animal rights activists) are probably causing a ‘fuss’ because there are other alternatives to culling these kangaroos but these are not going ahead because of the cost factor. Right or wrong, I think the fact that people care is a very fine thing indeed – all living things deserve fuss. Yes, even the pig that will be providing my protein tonight.

kean van choc, culling? killing? End result is still a dead animal. Hmm. I wonder how many cows are “culled” every day to allow for people like you to eat steak.

I hear Hippo Critters are on the increase around here too. Might have to go and cull a few …

As I’ve said before, eastern greys are classified as a pest by Parks and Wildlife.

I’m sure the people who authorise this sort of this have consulted with people who study it. If it really was wrong, then you wouldn’t have everybody (except RSPCA and Viva!) supporting it as the right thing to do.
