BREAKING NEWS: SAINSBURY'S DUMP KANGAROO MEAT!
Britain’s second largest supermarket has stopped selling kangaroo meat after thousands of people expressed their concerns. Thank you to everyone who did!
|GRAPHIC: See what the kangaroo killing industry doesn't want you to see ...|
Sainsbury’s were telling customers the kangaroo meat they sell was "100 per cent welfare friendly", but ignored that up to a million kangaroos are miss-shot each year in the Australian Outback away from scrutiny. They also ignored the baby kangaroos (joeys) pulled from their dying mother’s pouch to be decapitated or stamped on. And glossed over the still dependent adolescents shot and dumped or left to die from predation or hunger without the protection of their parents. We presented them with the information and now they have announced that they are no longer selling kangaroo meat!
Kangaroo slaughter is a nightly bloodbath of staggering proportions, with 6.8 million kangaroos earmarked for slaughter last year alone. The death toll could increase significantly to fill supermarket freezers in the UK. Our campaign has recently been featured in major national newspapers The Telegraph and The Sun.
Popularising and commercialising the meat of wild animals – whose populations are finite and unstable – is deeply irresponsible and potentially disastrous.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible!
