Tidbinbilla serves Kangaroo meat at their cafe.

FreddyVegan 12 December 2012 126

Over the weekend myself and an interstate friend went to Tidbbinbilla for a lovely day with the kangaroos and wildlife. Afterwards we decided to stop off at the new cafe they have there for lunch. You can imagine our shock and horror when we saw grilled kangaroo fillet and kangaroo sausages on menu. Kangaroos are one of the main attractions at Tidbinbilla, what message are we sending to visitors if we offer our native animal up for lunch. Spend the day with the kangaroos then come and eat them for lunch served along side Native Bush Tomatoes, wtf?.

Although I probably shouldn’t be suprised, this is canberra after all.

It’s not normal vegans that make peeps mad, it’s the hard line nut case ones like freddy here that basically call everyone who doesn’t fit their definition of vegan a murderer or rapist and go around spreading lies(see the article about kangaroo farming posted earlier).
They never post sources, they are never logical and they try to act superior and highly intelligent when in truth it’s always the opposite.

I think it goes both ways, too. I know people that do eat animal products who continually try to ‘catch out’ vegans regardless of said vegan’s behaviour. I think there are, unfortunately, people from all walks of life who just enjoying ticking each other off.

(That said, strictly speaking someone can wear leather shoes and still be a vegan. Veganism is about the diet.)

Not sure how many vegans you have met but I know a bunch who won’t ave leather anything.
The weirdos won’t even drink some delicious mescal.

Petrochemicals are derived from crude oil, an organic and natural product.

Hysterical ranting …

These rants make me smile. Like when you notice a piece of dunny paper stuck to someone elses shoe.

Yes the crude oil is a natural product, the refining of it not so much. Especially into plastics such as nylon.

I can imagine YOUR shock and horror. I imagine it would have been amusing to watch.

I can’t however imagine a normal person being shocked or horrified that a local cafe decided to serve healthy local produce.

Most would think its a good thing.

Spot on! Like serving whale meat jerky on the Sea Shephard.

How Canberran.

This article is so vile, it is making me ill. Isn’t “Tidbinbilla ” supposed to be a” Wildlife Refuge?” Their food service should be banned of all the happy animals we buy bags of food to fatten them up for their menu is disgusting and deplorable! . I’ll never bring my children or visitors there again, and I am quite sure many people who are aware of this disgrace will not spend their hard earned money for the “Wildlife Retreat”, feed the joeys, then have lunch of their mothers after they slaughter them.

I do hope you never eat seafood at a seaside restaurant. Since it amounts to the same thing.

Also, considering they don’t kill kangaroos from the reserve for food but rather get it from suppliers, your accusation of “having lunch of their mothers” is just plain stupid.

Kangarroo is a very lean meat. Easier for the stomach to digest. No cholesterol either. Lots of iron as well. After a meal you could get very energetic, so to speak.

Ha, ha. Nice bit of satire. For a moment there I thought you were serious.

milkman 4:03 pm 27 Dec 12

Hop on down to Tidbinbilla for some tasty local produce!

Kangaroos are much more environmeentally friendly than cows, and taste better anyway. They also exist in almost plague proportions.

I don’t see the problem here.

I just noticed the tags. Somehow I doubt that it was the OP who chose ‘tasty tasty kangaroo’. The hand of an unseen and most non-vegan ED.

It does interest me how vegans make some people really angry though!

They are on the same level as the bogans that defended mully.

Bwahahahahahahahahahaha, you think they are actually killing the roos out there? Maybe you should read the regulations on the processing of meat for sale to the public.

I have a question for Freddy. Do you wear leather shoes?

Given your user name I am not sure if I should bother with a reply, but I shall, even though I am pretty confident you are a wanker. I do have leather shoes I own from before I went vegan, however I now choose not to wear animal product so I don’t buy anything with leather. There are many great companies that sell non leather shoes and products at pretty reasonable prices, making it a lot easier. I would be happy to put up the links to the various businesses should you be interested.

Environmentally, this is potentially worse than using animal products for clothing.

This line of thinking restricts you to man made products so, other than clothing made of cotton or hemp, you will almost always be wearing something synthetic.

Synthetics are mostly made of petro chemicals which are far from natural and leave chemicals as they break down if they are not recycled as most clothing is not.

OK, people eating meat is a given and leather is a natural product (obviously not free of chemicals in its own right) but I would have thought it would me a more natural choice for someone who cared for the environment.

Are vegans environmentalists or just out to save the world from one cause?

Shaping up for a most unorthodox mully!

I think that vegans, many of whom have strong and admirable environmental views, should very much prefer us to be eating kangaroo over other meat due to the highly reduced environmental impact over other meats, as well as a natural life up until their death … and attempting to stop people eating it over very questionable information seems more like a close-minded, ignorant individual than the ecologically minded people vegans often present themselves as.

This is exactly why roo should be included on the menu at Tidbinbilla – and other similar places for that matter. Somebody give this man a beer.

Does Freddyvegan offer meat to his partners?

No, she doesn’t.

Around 2%of the population are true vegetarians. At most, half of those would also be vegan.

Therefore, FreddyVegan, you will never consider getting into a relationship with 44.5% of the population, or twice that if you swing both ways.

Putting aside the unnecessary murder of a beautiful innocent animal, to consume kangaroo meat is disgusting. The thought of someone eating kangaroo flesh makes me feel incredibly ill. I encourage you all to do some research into eating kangaroo meat before you talk about how healthy it is.

http://www.kangaroo-protection-coalition.com/eatkangaroomeat.html

However judging by some of the responses here I wouldn’t be all that surprised if a bit of fecal material and urine mixed in with your meat bothered you. The level of ignorance shown by a majority of the people posting here is very troubling.

Having researched extensively into kangaroo meat before I stopped being (completely) vegetarian, I can say with a fair bit of confidence that much of what is on these websites is propaganda with very little factual substantiation. I think that vegans, many of whom have strong and admirable environmental views, should very much prefer us to be eating kangaroo over other meat due to the highly reduced environmental impact over other meats, as well as a natural life up until their death. The basic biological fact is that humans are omnivorous. It is wrong to attempt to force everyone to become vegan however it IS helpful to present the most environmentally (and healthy) alternatives to common meats such as beef. Kangaroo is one of these and attempting to stop people eating it over very questionable information seems more like a close-minded, ignorant individual than the ecologically minded people vegans often present themselves as.

Well said, Skip.

I’m sure if it was that harmful to humans, they would have figured it out a while ago.

I think we can safely say humans have a proven track record for ingesting things known to be harmful.
