Call for support to ban kangaroo products in EU

    1. Petition by

      Australian Wildlife Protection Council

This petition is to ask every human being around the world who cares about animals to sign up and help protect the lives of some 440,000 baby kangaroos who face starvation or being bludgeoned to death after their mother is shot.  This happens in Australia every year and the world sits back. Russia has banned the meat on health grounds yet the EU and other communities continue importing it.  Kangaroos are killed in the outback every night and skinned to make sports footwear.  THIS KILLING MUST STOP and be banned in EU as seal products have. We need your support. The kangaroos need your support. Not only are you signing our petition but also sending letters by submitting your action, to decision makers.

    1. You were awesome! Thank you.

      When we had our petition going in the EU you were kind enough to sign up and sup[port what we were trying to do. We managed to get over 32,000 signatures which makes you as a signer awesome.

      We need your help again with a new petition but this time in Australia. Victoria state Gov. has just issued almost 2000 licences to kangaroo killers which will lead to thousands of animals dieting.....for pet food!

      This will of course include baby kangaroos dyeing horrible deaths. If you could spare us a few minutes to sign, we don't want any money just your support with a signature and that of your friends and family.

      Please help us once again make a difference and save these poor animals. Thank you. Philip Woolley, Executive International, Australian Wildlife Protection Council.

      All animals are important to me those who treating kangaroos in this way are thoroughly heartless and inhuman. Is it for the money they do it or is it that they find it fun?! I can't tell you what I would like to do to these people!
