Saw a video on the internetsome time back about a kangaroo at a theme park in China they had a harness on it and boxing gloves and it had to fight chinese boxes , they reckoned the kangaroo loved it -bullshit. Tt the same theme park they had horse fighting each other - apparantly it was a popular place to take the kids.
i think it is cruel to take any animal out of its natural element just to have it perform tricks like this or fight...that's just horrible, actually. i wonder how some countries get away with this stuff.
Hi Irish if they knew how they are killed maybe not. A lot of people shot does with joeys in their pouches, they don't want the Joey sho they smash it against the bull bars - supposed to be very humane.
Kangaroos may seem sweet but trust me they are pests! I lived in Australia for 7 seven years and my home was near a wild life park so it was always normal to see them hoping up and about. I did accidentally kill one when it just jumped in front of my car, damaging the whole bonet and radiator. I was fined $1000 (Australian Dollars)...
I do think they look cute in gloves but I don't encourage animal fights instigated by humans.
Sorry you feel that way about our Australian Emblem Mamelody - hope your next visit to Australia is more friendly - anyway Kangaroos are just trying to survive like the rest of us and if you were living near a Wildlife Park there would be a few about .
I myself being a black belt Karate/Kickboxer think it is completely crew to put the gloves on the kangaroo. They are such a strong animal when ticked off. You are asking for trouble setting up a sparring match with such an animal. And the kick that could follow, man o man. It might look cute and all, but no not a thing to do to the poor animal
I saw it too but when I saw it i was very ignorant - now my son tells me Iam just naive for getting angry over the plight of such animals because there is nothing I can do about it - thats what hurts -
