There’s plenty of Roos, Lee. Plenty!
Kangaroo: A Love-Hate Story is a documentary made by Kate McIntyre Clere and Michael McIntyre and suggests we hate the roos and they are at risk of becoming an endangered species.
In The Australian, Phillipa Hawker, reviewing the doco, suggests;
A new documentary finds Australians bitterly divided over a national symbol.
Maybe there’s bitter division in Phillipa’s favourite coffee shop in the CBD but I think 98% of Aussies recognise the Roo as a great animal but that it does damage agriculture and they need to be culled. From the time we were colonised, farmers and town planners have been building tens of thousands of dams thus providing an opportunity for the Roo population to expand exponentially.
The last time I crossed the Nullabor I was driving though mobs as big as depicted in the video below and stuck on low speeds for ten or 20 kilometres at a time.
They aren’t endangered and it’s unlikely they ever will be.
I can understand the Doco makers trying to make a quid based on “look at the poor joey” but Rhiannon? She just wants to stuff up the country and deny any income from agriculture.
The Communist bitch should be shot. Now there’s a thought – cull the communists. Now that would be great for the country
I wonder if any of the above have seen this clip?
In June 2017 we had the opportunity to plant 240 hectares of chickpeas, by the end of July half of these had been eaten by the roos and the other half will probably be eaten in the next month. It makes me wonder what proportion of the Greens income is also donated to keeping these native animals alive.Posted by Michael Hetherington on Friday, 28 July 2017
