Stop the Barbaric Slaughter of Thousands of Kangaroos

Target: Mick Gentleman, Minister for Planning and Land Management of the Australia Capital Territory

Goal: Stop the Australian government from needlessly killing thousands of native kangaroos.

Australian officials have approved the culling of kangaroos in the Australian Capital Territory for yet another year. For the next three months, thousands of the native marsupials will be massacred in an attempt to control their population. Kangaroos are an essential part of Australia’s natural ecosystem and help reduce the risk of damaging brush fires, and therefore must be protected against this needless form of cruelty.

As part of the annual cull, unlicensed hunters are allowed to participate and kill virtually any animals that they find in a variety of inhumane ways, including the clubbing of young kangaroos and their mothers. Additionally, those opposing the cull have faced prosecution, making it difficult for animal rights groups to rally against the ongoing cruelty.

The Australian government must listen to the voices of those who stand against this cull that lacks any scientific basis and results in the suffering and death of thousands of animals. Sign below to demand that officials seek non lethal alternatives to controlling the kangaroo population.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister Gentleman,

Each year since 2009, thousands of kangaroos have been ruthlessly killed each year in the Australian Capital Territory as part of a misguided attempt to control their population. While kangaroos are prolific by nature, they are an integral part of the ecosystem and help maintain Australia’s biodiversity while reducing the risk of damaging fires by clearing away excessive brush.

Unless government officials intervene, thousands of kangaroos will be killed in a host of inhumane and cruel ways, including the brutal clubbing of young joeys and their mothers. These native creatures should be allowed to thrive as they have for millennia, not killed in mass numbers to make way for livestock or other human endeavors. If population control is indeed necessary, we urge you to find humane, non lethal alternatives that do not cause harm to one of Australia’s most iconic species.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Stop the Australian government from needlessly killing thousands of native kangaroos.

    Australian officials have approved the culling of kangaroos in the Australian Capital Territory for yet another year. For the next three months, thousands of the native marsupials will be massacred in an attempt to control their population. Kangaroos are an essential part of Australia’s natural ecosystem and help reduce the risk of damaging brush fires, and therefore must be protected against this needless form of UNIMAGINABLE cruelty.

    The Australian Government is an absolute disgrace allowing the masaccre of our precious Kangaroos to be allowed to continue. All the Australian Government is thinking about is the blood money in their vile and evil pockets as well as their filthy GREED.

    They are trying to open an Abattoir in Victoria which the Australian people are fighting to stop. All the Australian Government are wanting is that our precious and innocent Kangaroos be massacred, skinned and butchered for consumption, also exporting their tortured and battered bodies to oversea countries. All this sadism and evilness allowed to be committed against our precious Wildlife Kangaroos is purely for the Australian Governments GREED and they must be stopped.
    They show no compassion, no empathy, no decency, no integrity and definitely no moral ethics whatsoever. All the Australian Government show is their pure sadism, evilness and GREED.

    Late last year in the ACT over a million precious Kangaroos were massacred in less than a couple of months and most of these precious and helpless Kangaroos were females carrying baby Joeys in their pouches.That accounts for about 2 million or more Kangaroos being massacred including their precious and helpless Joeys.
    The precious and innocent Joeys that survived the masaccre of their mums were decapitated or blundgeoned to death. This is what’s allowed to happen in Australia by the vile and evil Australian Government and their cronies.

    The Australian people are fighting to stop all these unimaginable atrocities committed against their precious and beloved Wildlife, but they are ignored by their vile and evil Wildlife murdering Government.

    It has be stated that if these massacres of our precious Kangaroos are allowed to continue our precious Kangaroos will become extinct within seven years.

    AUSTRALIA HAS THE HIGHEST RATE OF WILDLIFE EXTINCTION WORLDWIDE. WHAT DOES THAT SAY ABOUT THE AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT?

    SO GOD HELP OUR PRECIOUS AUSTRALIAN WILDLIFE AND ALL OUR PRECIOUS ANIMALS.

    THIS IS ABSOLUTELY SICKENING AND UNFORGIVABLE.

  4. NO EXISTE JUSTIFICACIÓN ALGUNA PARA EL CRIMEN!!! NO TIENEN DERECHO A HACER ESTO. ESTAS ACCIONES NOS MANIFIESTAN LA IGNORANCIA DE TODO UN PUEBLO; LA BRUTALIDAD Y LA DIMINUTA EVOLUCIÓN DE TODO UN PAÍS. AUSTRALIA SE CARACTERIZA POR LA BARBARIE Y LA IGNORANCIA!!!! Y SI QUIEREN RESPETO DE PARTE DE TODO EL MUNDO COMO UN PUEBLO MÁS CONSCIENTE, TIENEN QUE PONER LEYES EN CONTRA DE ESTAS BRUTALIDADES!!!
