Australia’s kangaroo meat industry is fighting an attempt to have its products banned from the European Union.
Animal rights campaigners, who’ve already succeeded in prohibiting the importation of seal products, have turned their attention to what they call “the largest land-based wildlife slaughter in the world”.

They claim the killing of the animals is cruel, and the processing of meat unhygienic; the industry denies both.
