Kangaroo culling in Australia: Should Australia be culling kangaroos?

  • Most definitely should

    Roos have taken over our school grounds and the park. Not only have they eaten all the grass and plants, they have brought in ticks which you only find once they become itchy and often people get tick fever. Due to the drought they have been eating dead animals along our roads and highways which in turn now possibly are infected with botulism, and they come in and feed leaving droppings, the park is totally covered in them exposing our kids, visitors, residents and travellers to the diseases and germs. I have had q fever from roos , spending 18 days in hospital because my liver and kidneys had shut down. Not to mention the damage to vehicles' most of the time no matter how slow you go you cant avoid hitting them, the amount of flat tyres is bullshit. Then we have the town dogs that will chase and kill. The drought has left many in poor condition slowly dying from starvation. I would rather see them culled than left to die or even hit over the head cause lets face it not all of us have a gun licence to shoot them

  • Kangaroo cullung helps the economy

    Kangaroo culling helps the economy, and the industry is worth 200 million dollars they were 37 million kangaroos in 2001 but the popuation is growing fast. Its a win win situation kangaroo culling benefits the economy AND keeps the leash on the kangaroo population. Urbanisation also takes away the kangaroos food forcing them to start eating crops but thats not enough to feed the 37 million roos and many are starving to death

  • Yes, it protects humanity.

    Yes, Australia should be culling kangaroos, because they think it is needed in order to protect other animals and wildlife, as well as human settlements. Kangaroos look all nice and cute in cartoons, but in real life they are very fast animals that are capable of causing a great deal of harm.

  • Yes, too many kangaroos are dangerous.

    Yes, Australia should be culling kangaroos, because overpopulation can cause problems. There are many things to think about when considering what an optimum kangaroo population is, among them concerns about accidents with vehicles, and whether an overpopulation will upset the balance of the ecosystem. Australian experts can determine what the best kangaroo population is, and if they need to reduce the population, they should be able to.

  • We should be culling animals like rabbits and foxes

    Kangaroos are native animals and truly they do not needed to be culled. They are beautiful animals and as it states above the national icon. We should be using our resources not on culling kangaroos but on culling other animals that are greater pests like the rabbit and fox. Australia needs to realise that culling kangaroos is not important but a waste of time and effort that could be used on better projects like killing rabbits and foxes.

  • Kangaroos are a national icon.

    It's strange how such an iconic animal so widely advertised through the tourism industry and even on our coat of arms can, in reality, be treated as a pest and heavily killed throughout parts of Australia. Tourists are upset by the fact that they can't go out and see Australia's natural WILDlife in the wild unless they pay an exorbitant fee. Instead they have to go to zoos to see our natural WILDlife. It's damaging the tourist industry and harming our economy.
