This is coolbert:

Here with more dope on the Great Australian Kangaroo cull!!

"Australia to shoot 6,000 kangaroos"

"Civilian marksmen contracted by the department began shooting the kangaroos on Tuesday night at Defense's Majura Training Area, where an estimated 9,000 of the wild marsupials roam, Army Brig. Brian Dawson told reporters."

"The nighttime shooting is expected to continue intermittently until August. The training ground covers more than 7,400 acres (3,000 hectares) and includes grenade and artillery firing ranges"

Well, this answers some of my questions. ONLY civilian marksmen will cull the kangaroo population. Shooting at nighttime. Kangaroo are like a deer when caught in a high-power light. Become transfixed, can be approached and shot from a vehicle with a high-power rifle.

NOT much sport here, but it is not intended to be.

This Majura is NOT a large facility either. ONLY about three and one half [3 1/2] miles on a side! NOT immense as I thought it might have been!
