THIS PETITION IS NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT SIGNED.
We had over 5,000 submissions demanding Iceland stop selling kangaroo meat. But the battle is not yet won. Lidl remain as Britain's only major supermarket still selling the meat. Help us show that this cruelty is not acceptable - ACT NOW.
Kangaroo meat is sold as ‘just a bit of fun’, but don’t be fooled. It is the product of suffering and blood-shed on an enormous scale. Millions are shot every year in Australia in the vast outback. Many are mis-shot and die a slow, agonising death.
Unlike the two rescued joeys above, hundreds of thousands of pouch young babies are also ripped from their dying mothers annually and smashed around the head or decapitated. Their older siblings flee and will invariably suffer a slow and lingering death without the protection of their mother. In other words, buy a kangaroo steak and you could be getting dead joeys for free.
We will collect all of your messages and deliver them to Iceland HQ. Why campaign on kangaroos?
