The Australian Government authorizes the slaughter of millions of kangaroos every single year. They are shot at night in the vast outback, away from public scrutiny. 40 percent of kangaroos are not expertly killed, they suffer wounded for hours.
Farmers have a financial interest in the mass murder:
Around half of the merino wool produced worldwide comes from Australia. The herds and the need for pasture land are correspondingly large.
Wild kangaroos take away the pastures from the flocks of sheep. This annoys the Australian farmers – they consider the national symbol like a plague and a threat to their financial income from the sale of the merino wool.
The flesh and leather of the killed kangaroos are exported in large quantities.
Germany is one of the main sales markets for kangaroo products.
And I mean…It is the largest annual massacre of wildland animals on the planet. And one of the most brutal.
Shame on Australia for murdering their iconic kangaroos to make meaningless purses, wallets, jackets, shoes, or sporting goods! The killing is a disgrace – cruel and entirely profit-motivated.
Shame on Australia, on farmers and murderous hunters who always want to protect their businesses with murder.
This corrupt government is not only to blame for the annual mass murder of the harmless kangaroos but also for the murderous business model of ship transport with sheep to Kuwait and the Arab Emirates.
The Australian government must go, Morrison must go.
My best regards to all Venus
