Stop the kangaroo slaughter

BOYCOTT ADIDAS and AUSTRALIA (also at the Olympics)

All Australian laws assented to on behalf of a British Monarch, by any non-legally appointed Governor-General of Australia since 1919, cannot hold any valid or legal executive authority, as all of the Governor-Generals appointments have been issued incorrectly. The ENTIRE AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT, IS NOW OFFICIALLY ILLEGAL !

Stop the kangaroo slaughter !!!

DO PEOPLE ACTUALLY REALIZE THAT THERE WAS NO PROBLEM UNTIL THE FIRST PRISONER OF HER MAYESTY ?

The largest massacre of land animals on the planet takes place in Australia each year. Millions of adult kangaroos are shot for their meat and skins (for luxury items such as soccer boots made by ADIDAS or souvenirs). Millions of orphaned baby joeys, "worthless" to the industry, are shot, stamped on, clubbed over the head or abandoned to die. In pouch joeys are routinely ripped from the pouch and decapitated, or bludgeoned to death. Occasionally they are shot. The joey at foot is normally left to starve or to meet death by predation. There is no record of numbers of joeys killed or left to starve. Nowhere else in the world are the young of wild animals treated with such blatant disregard for their suffering.

More info on the recent kangaroo slaughter:

In order to supply their commercial markets, the kangaroo industry continues the commercial kill even during the worst drought in living history. They target the biggest and best animals and kill those kangaroos who are essential in order to pass on their strong genes for the survival of the species. The industry is running out of large kangaroos and one kangaroo meat and skin processor has reported that “some skins we get are the size of a handkerchief”. The industry is now desperate to open up new areas where sizeable kangaroos can still be found. The NSW State Government had recently approved the expansion of the shooting zone into southeast NSW. This area contains some of the last undisturbed kangaroo populations with intact, complex family-structures and strong alpha males to ensure their survival.

It seems that the Kangaroo Industry has also succeeded in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). On Sunday night, the 11th of July 2004, Environment authority of ACT allowed commercial kangaroo shooters into the Googong Dam catchment area, a Fauna Reserve outside Canberra. Despite international outrage, during the following two weeks 800 kangaroos were slaughtered and also many joeys (babies). Animal rights activists had been at the dam each night to stop the massacre by creating a human shield. They managed to seriously disrupt the shooting, but were unable to prevent the eventual slaughter.

No reasonable community consultation has taken place. Environment ACT claimed the kangaroos were the cause of erosion and water contamination, when livestock from properties adjoining the dam are clearly the real culprits and runoff from the livestock dung is reaching the water. However, when this was pointed out, the authority changed tactics and suddenly claimed the kangaroos were starving, and so needed to be slaughtered. These kangaroos are NOT starving. There is plenty of dry feed on un-stocked properties and road reserves within easy reach of the dam.

Imagine the picture (just one of the scenes): ...Two shooters are in a 4WD truck with the heater going full bore. The night is black, and like most nights at the Dam, the temperature is below zero, with some nights the area experiencing rain and sleet or snow on adjacent mountains.The shooters spotlight and shoot female kangaroos. They shoot a female, drag a joey out of the dead mothers pouch, cut it’s head off or bash it’s head in, as required by the Code of Practice, then throw it aside. Any ex-pouch joeys still dependant on their mother, flee in panic into the night to eventually die of exposure. The mother kangaroo is gutted and hung on the side of the truck. The shooters jump back into the warm truck and drive on looking for more kangaroos......dollars beckon…..

This "management of our so called ‘protected wildlife’" is a cruel and gruesome blood bath for a fistful of dollars, the kangaroo is well and truly betrayed…
