Kangaroo cruelty in the freezer at Lidl

Buy one kangaroo steak and get two dead joeys for free

Urgent action: Use our petition to contact Lidl today!

 

Lidl selling kangaroo meat

Please contact Lidl and ask them to drop kangaroo meat. Viva! persuaded all UK supermarkets not to sell kangaroo meat over a decade ago now, and Lidl are the first one to break ranks and put it back on sale. Iceland have now followed suit, so please contact them, too!

This trade will almost certainly lead to even more kangaroos being killed – and their babies and young shot or decapitated and then simply discarded. In other words, consumers are responsible not just for the death of the animal they consume – but also the death of her young. Around 20 per cent of kangaroos killed each year are female – which means around a million joeys are killed for the trade each year.

Also, recent research shows kangaroo meat has a higher amount of a chemical linked to increased risks of heart attack and stroke than any other red meat.

We must stop this, otherwise other retailers might follow suit and enter this cruel and unsustainable trade in dead wildlife. Use our handy email/letter below to contact them.
