    Hey man.....how did you know about my old nik? Were you on the other channel? Who are you? Or....who were you?

    As for the "jingjoes" we cull no less than a million of the suckers a year. Great eating. Should be doing the same with the f'n dolphins that keep knocking off the fish I try to catch.


    No, no, no, no, no!!!!!

    How fashionable. If you're such a vegan, why is it you promote the milk side of yourself?

    But kangaroos produce virtually no methane because their digestive systems are different. Methane is about 25 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide molecule for molecule.

    yup,

    and water vapour is a bigger methane gas than all of them combined.

    I agree. I see why they do it though. How does Kangaroo taste? Is it popular, and expensive? Doesn't sound very appetizing to me.

    My fam hunts elk, moose, bear, deer -- fills up the winter freezers and keeps the herd counts down.

    Aboriginal Australians are permitted to hunt kill and consume all their traditional foods which is basically everything from bugs to snakes to birds whether they are endangered or not. It's a right of their cultural heritage and the laws governing it are part of the Native Title legislation granted by the Federal parliament. You'll find that the Maoris in New Zealand have similar rights and they hunt and eat whales.

    In the case of kangaroo consumption consider this.

    People eat meat, most do.
    To feed the people large areas of light forest were cleared to make pasture land along with large irrigation systems to support the farming of crops, cattle and sheep.
    This increased the habitat area capable of supporting kangaroo species.
    Kangaroo populations exploded and quickly turned into pests.
    Until about 20 years ago kangaroos were culled by farmers yearly in millions and their meat was used for animal feed and pet food.
    Now humans are consuming the meat.

    A viable use of a natural resource.

    Plus they do taste nice.

    If Asians can quite happily eat vermin and insects i can't see why Aussies should be banned from it.

    milky, it's all a bunch of BS, have some info:

    Viva, a case study in misinformation

    The organisation, Vegetarians International Voice for Animals, has attacked every livestock industry under the sun. A quick look at their website (Viva! - Vegetarians International Voice for Animals) will demonstrate that they will stop at nothing to have humans not do anything at all with any animal species. Their campaign against the kangaroo industry is based around a so called 'report', titled Under Fire, which makes a puseudo-scientifc attempt to portray the kangaroo industry as unsustainable and morally corrupt.
    The Vegetarians International 'report' is highly emotive, cites little scientific evidence, is based on peoples opinions and treats the truth very casually to say the least. The 'reports' general level of reliability can quickly be demonstrated by a close look at its opening paragraph. This states:
    "The official kill rate (of kangaroos) for export in 2001 is 5.5 million animals, slaughtered mainly for their skin and meat. Official statistics ignore the millions of joeys (young kangaroos) who also die when their mothers are shot, which vastly increases the true scale of the slaughter. When non-commercial and illegal kills are included, together with the large number of road kills, the figure is in the region of 10 million."
    The official commercial quota of kangaroos which could be killed in 2001 was indeed 5.5 million. HOWEVER this merely represents the total allowable commercial take. The actual number harvested was 3.392 million (see the Australian Government records at Commercial Kangaroo harvest in 2001). Viva are deliberately and knowingly misrepresenting data and playing with words. Further they add another 5 million to the 'legal kill rate' without citing at any place in the report any reliable evidence to support such numbers. The claim made in the 'reports' very first paragraph, represents hearsay and a play on words. In the light of this how can any of the rest of the document be trusted?
    Viva make a broad rash of claims against the kangaroo industry. Some are examined in detail below. More detailed information on the kangaroo harvest is also given in the document Kangaroo Industry Background at Kangaroo Industry Assocn of Australia - Background Info.
    Viva suggest kangaroo harvesting is unsustainable.

    One of Viva's principal claims is that the kangaroo industry threatens the survival of the commercially harvested kangaroos and risks driving them extinct. As has already been noted they mis-represent the allowable take as the actual current kangaroo harvest. However at no point do they note that the quota is the maximum sustainable yield of the population. It represents 10-12% of the population and is carefully calculate so that is even if the quota was taken it would not threaten population numbers. Details of this process are given in Kangaroo Industry Background.
    Further Viva cite information on the non-commercial kill from 16 years ago as representative of current practices. The do not acknowledge that as the commercial take has increased in recent years, the non-commercial pest mitigation kill has decreased. For example in South Australia a supplementary quota is issued as a part of the total quota. This can be used for non-commercial pest mitigation, it has dropped from 505,000 in 1997 to 297,920 in 2001 (see Kangaroo and wallaby harvesting statistics). Similarly the Viva report cites a 'quote' from a supposed National Parks officer without providing a reference from which the quote has been sourced. This hardly represents sound scientific reporting.
    At no point do Viva note that the population estimates produced by well refined scientific processes show a stable, and recently dramatically increasing kangaroo population.
    In fact the current estimated population of 58.6 million is the highest ever and means there are more than twice as many kangaroos in Australia as there are cattle!

    In the Faroes, they have been advised, not to eat more grind.
    Too much Mercury and PCB.
    Has been their foodreserve for centuries.

    Don't know if the same goes for Inuits though
