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.
Poor kangaroo! I agree with you, it's not okay. I hate it when humans anthropomophize... Welcome to HP, by the way.
bonny one of your fellow country persons have just said she has been out and had kangaroo for dinner, on the good morning thread, I dont like the sound of that, is kangaroo food there
Kangaroos are actually pretty good dinner..
Was it seasoned, if it was you weren't really eating kangaroo - straight kangaroo stinks to high heaven when you cook it and it has a very wild taste -
I have no idea.. The restaurant said it was a Kangaroo, and I don't think restaurants lie a lot..
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.
You can buy it in the supermarket, between the lamb and the pork.
There are lots of Roos in Asia and the East.
They have always suffered the indignity of having to wear boxing gloves.... Which is pretty stupid really - they make far better Kick Boxers
How's Your Cane Toad Rescue Programme going?
Not surprising. At least, not that it justifies it, it is not one of the circus elephants or lions here...makes me cringe.
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.
Where in Australia did you live that they'd fine a person for hitting an animal that was on the road?
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 once saw a movie called Matilda that was made in the 80s. It was supposed to be a cute little family comedy about a boxing kangaroo but now that I know this is really happening, I am disturbed.

Why does a mother kangaroo carry its young in a pouch?

How does a kangaroo pouch get cleaned, if ever, from the "waste" deposited by baby kangaroos?

What first comes your mind when you think of Australia?

The federal government could declare a state of emergency and post at least 2 well trained, armed personnel, either police or military, within our public schools. Gunmen attack soft targets. They like to assault "gun free zones." I believe 20 years of wrangling over...
