Roo Hunters Hopping Mad Over Call for Ban
[video at full story link]
Australia’s kangaroo meat industry is fighting an attempt to have its
products banned from the European Union.
They claim the killing of the animals is cruel, and the processing of meat unhygienic; the industry denies both.
Every year up to four million kangaroos are shot for their meat and skins. By law, hunting is only done at night when the marsupials are more docile, and an easier target.
