STOP THE SLAUGHTER OF KANGAROOS IN AUSTRALIA

    1. Petition by

      KINSHIP CIRCLE

Kangaroos are slaughtered by the millions every year; their skins are considered prime material for soccer shoes. Although the Australian government requires that hunters shoot the animals, orphaned joeys and wounded adults are, according to government code, to be decapitated or hit sharply on the head “to destroy the brain.” Upon learning about these cruel methods, soccer star David Beckham switched to shoes made from synthetic materials in 2006.

According to the WWF of Australia the kangaroo, their iconic national treasure, is now on the brink of extinction.

Up to 10,000 kangaroos are killed every night by commercial hunters.
