Boycott All Kangaroo Products

December 3, 2009
Public Health at Risk 

Irrespective of moral, ethical and heritage values, the health risk to the public in the consumption of kangaroo meat is unacceptable.  Dangerous levels of salmonella and E.coli have been found in kangaroo meat destined for human consumption.

A former Senior Food Inspector  Dr Sibraa has stated that humans and pets also risk contracting toxoplasmosis, which can result in foetal death or birth defects in pregnant women.

An ecotoxicology expert Dr David Obendorf  recently said the kangaroo industry had been covering up problems for years and public health would continue to be put at risk.

Kangaroos are slaughtered  usually at night, dragged through the dirt and hung on a truck, quite often covered in blow flies.   Then transported to a ‘chiller box’ which may or may not have been hygienically cleaned.

Leaked memos and internal documents seen by the Herald Nov 18th 2009, showed evidence that trucks were being ‘loaded hot’ exposing the carcasses to temperatures above 25 deg for extended periods.   Chiller boxes in remote areas regularly malfunction.

This is a disgusting cruel industry.

Do not poison yourselves or your pets.

Please, boycott all kangaroo products.
