More on the Great Australian Kangaroo cull!
From the Chicago Tribune today:
“NATION & WORLD”
“AUSTRALIA: Kangaroo cull suspended”
“CANBERRA - - A court suspended a government program to kill 7,000 kangaroos on federal land near the Australian capital Thursday,”
“Civilian marksmen contracted by the government shot and killed 4,000 kangaroos, which are largely nocturnal, over nine nights since last week”
That federal land, of course, is the Majura Training Area. Used by a variety of Australian military units, and also as a training area for international police forces.
Majura, only about three and one half miles square in size, is infested with the bloody “hoppers” Culling of the herd was a necessity? These kangaroos were literally eating themselves out of house and home. About half of the kangaroos “resident” at the facility have been “offed” in just nine days?
ONE CAN ONLY IMAGINE THE REACTION IF THE AUSTRALIAN MILITARY HAD ORGANIZED THE “CULL” AS A LIVE-FIRE EXERCISE FOR CERTAIN SELECT MILITARY UNITS!
See my prior blog entry regarding this sort of thing! For entertainment purposes only of course!
For you youngsters, the Fabulous Kangaroos were an Australian wrestling tag team from the era of the 1950's.
