The slaughter has started

I really don’t know what to write. In spite of all of our efforts the killing of the kangaroos started today. I have seen a photograph of one kangaroo that was trampled to death in the panic that ensued when these gentle animals were herded into the fenced area. Wildlife supporters have contacted the RSPCA expressing concerns, only to be told that because it is on Defence land they have no jurisdiction.

I am ashamed of being an Australian. I am ashamed of my fellow humans who can kill these sentient beings with absolutely no remorse. Pouched young will be killed according to a government sanctioned code of practice that requires them to have their throats cut or their heads crushed against a tow bar. I am sorry if some find this offencive but this is the reality of what is happening.
