The Feed - Kangaroo Harvesting
Each night, Rob Gallina and his teen son load their rifles, set up the truck and go out to clear the land of kangaroos. They're professional roo harvesters, employed by farmers to rid their properties of the so-called pest. Around 3 million wild roos and nearly 900,000 joeys are killed each year for meat. It's considered a sustainable alternative to livestock, but activists say the methods used to kill them are inhumane. So, should these Aussie icons be nurtured or culled?
The Feed was broadcast on SBS ONE at Tuesday 27 April 2021, 12:30.
