Kangaroos are the victims of the largest land-based wildlife slaughter in the world. Every year the commercial kangaroo industry kills millions of kangaroos for their meat and skins which is sold to Australian and international companies and turned into pet food, footwear, leather accessories and kangaroos steaks, burgers and sausages. The commercial slaughter of kangaroos by the kangaroo industry is a profit driven industry in meat and skins and is not for population control or damage mitigation.... in 2014 alone at least 130,000 female kangaroos were shot by the kangaroo industry for their meat and skins, resulting in the cruel death and orphaning of hundreds of thousands of pouch and at foot dependent young.
