Note To My Critics:

The links to the many sites that I've included contain information that I believe to be relevant, be it the graphics, the videos, the undercover investigations, etc. . Exposing & and ending the brutality and savagery inflicted on the non-human animals is what I am focused on. I strongly believe that every voice against animal abuse/exploitation is of value and -and- collectively we have the power to end it. I am here for the animals, not for anyone's approval and for that I make no apologies. ** I do not promote violence towards humans. ___________________________________________________ Bookmark and Share

Mass Kangaroo Slaughter

Reposted with thanks to: Phil





Australia's dirty secret
....







Australia's unique heritage of indigenous animals has been treated with contempt and brutality since white man arrived. Australia is a nation led by soul-less politicians whose only concern is money, power and the ability to destroy this continent's ecology behind a protective wall of propaganda and extraordinary irresponsible legislation, which guarantees extinction.


The first thing that needs to be said about the betrayal of the kangaroo is that the sell out has not been confined to government, industry, politicians, media and some scientists…the kangaroo has also been sold out by the environmental movement both nationally and internationally.


Over the years, millions of dollars were raised overseas to help the kangaroo. Millions and millions, money that never came back to Australia so that desperately needed legal action could be taken, or professional campaigns funded. In spite of the mountains of evidence that the kangaroo industry is robbing Australia of a critical component of its wildlife heritage, the major Australian conservation groups have by and large ignored the plight of the kangaroo.


The kangaroo is a symbol of Australia. The bloody symbol of a nation whose leaders turned away from their moral, social and environmental responsibility. The kangaroo's fate will also be shared by the remaining unique wildlife in this great continent. Deliberate, politically induced extinction so that a few may gain from the death of a species.


A survey of tourists arriving in Australia showed that the two most favored tourism icons anywhere in the World were the Statue of Liberty, followed by the Kangaroo! Another survey taken when tourists were leaving Australia showed many were disappointed they didn't see any wild kangaroos!..

THE AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT IS NOW PREPARING FOR A CULL AT MAJURA:


FANTASY AND FACT

FANTASY: KANGAROOS ARE IN PLAGUE PROPORTIONS AND MUST BE CONTROLLED!

FACT: THIS IS A MYTH TO SUPPORT MASS KANGAROO KILLING. BEFORE THE SETTLEMENT OF EUROPEANS THE KANGAROO WAS ESTIMATED TO BE APPROXIMATELY 200 MILLION...TODAY THE KANGAROO IS A MERE PORTION OF THAT TOTAL.


FANTASY: KANGAROOS ARE DAMAGING THE LAND

FACT: THIS IS PURE PROPAGANDA TO PROMOTE MORE KANGAROO SLAUGHTER...THE SO CALLED OVERGRAZING IS CAUSED BY THE INTRODUCTION OF SHEEP AND CATTLE, MAINTAINED AT HIGH DENSITIES ON PASTURES YEAR ROUND.


FANTASY: IT'S GREENER TO EAT KANGAROO THAT FACTORY FARMED CATTLE AND SHEEP.


FACT: THIS UNFORTUNATELY IS PROMOTED BY MANY ENVIRONMENTALISTS...THE FACTORY FARMERS WILL NEVER GIVE UP THEIR PROFITABLE LIVESTOCK INDUSTRY.


FANTASY: IF ABORIGINAL PEOPLE EAT KANGAROO, WHY SHOULDN'T THE REST OF THE WORLD.


FACT: THAT STATEMENT IS HIGHLY DISRESPECTFUL TO ABORIGINAL CULTURE, WHICH HAS A DEEP SPIRITUAL CONNECTION TO ALL NATIVE WILDLIFE AND ESPECIALLY KANGAROOS.


FANTASY: THIS IS THE FROSTING ON THE CAKE: KANGAROOS ARE KILLED HUMANELY BECAUSE THE SHOOTERS ADHERE TO A CODE OF PRACTICE.


FACT: IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO ENSURE THAT KANGAROOS ARE KILLED HUMANELY, AS THE KILLING OCCURS IN THE DARK OF NIGHT TORCHES/FLASHLIGHTS ARE USED TO SPOT THE TARGETS...THE CODE OF PRACTICE IS NOT MONITORED AT THE POINT OF THE KILL, BUT ONLY BY SPOT CHECKS OF CARCASSES IN REFRIGERATED CONTAINERS WHERE THE VICTIMS ARE STORED AFTER THE NIGHT'S SLAUGHTER...A KANGAROOS HEAD IS A VERY SMALL TARGET FROM A DISTANCE...HORRIBLE INJURIES OCCUR: i.e. THE MOUTH OF THE KANGAROO MAY BE BLOWN AWAY; IF THE KANGAROO ESCAPES IT WILL DIE A SLOW DEATH OF STARVATION... STOMACHS CAN ALSO BE HIT, EXPELLING THE CONTENTS WHILE THE KANGAROO IS STILL ALIVE...HORRIBLE CRUELTY HAS ALSO BEEN DOCUMENTED...THE KANGAROOS ARE HUNG ON HOOKS ON THE SIDE OF THE KILLER'S VANS...SOME KANGAROOS ARE STILL CONSCIOUS WHEN THIS HAPPENS...JOEYS ARE RIPPED FROM THEIR MOTHER'S POUCHES AND STOMPED TO DEATH, THE JOEYS THAT ESCAPE WILL DIE FROM LACK OF ITS MOTHER'S MILK, EXPOSURE AND HYPOTHERMIA.
