Where do the kangaroo heads go?

By gladbag - 14 November 2007 22

I live out of town. Last week coming out of my driveway, I noticed a car stopped on the public road next to my gate, about 500m away, didn’t think much of it. However, driving out of my driveway, I noticed a new road kill, and it’s head had been chopped off. Previously I have noticed other roadkill on the side of the road missing their heads, however, I could never be sure that it was not part of the accident. This however was definitely post accident.

What I would like to know, and no-one in my office can help me, is what do people do with chopped off kangaroo heads?

What’s Your opinion?

My guess is hillbilly kids putting them on wooden stakes stuck in the ground outside their cubby houses.

Either that or the local mad scientists at CSIRO are trying to build a supervillain with the mindpower of one thousand roos.

I must start to keep an eye on the local roadkill, now you’ve got me thinkin’. (Captain’s Flat road). We get the odd wild pig, too. But they keep their heads on so far.

I thought of the dogmeat option, but the idea of heads lying all over the garden for the dogs to munch on seems a bit strange. The headless one I inspected was in Wamboin, and I have seen them on Sutton road beforehand (but not with closer inspection)

I’ve heard of roos being killed for dogmeat…where are these headless marsupials?

Well, you didn’t think they used battery hens for KFC nuggets, did you? Duh!

Something for his dog to chew on? (Yuck). My dogs come back with bits of skin and arms and things, from roos, rabbits, whatever they can find. Chihuahuas remember that they were once Wolves…

So tempted to make a smart-assed remark about Port Hedland or Highlander but I won’t. Actually, one of Australia’s first known cook-books features a dish called ‘Slippery Bob’, main ingredient being Kangaroo brains cooked slowly in Emu fat. True story, google it. So its either that or random satanism.

Perhaps it was a parking inspector looking for a brain?
