We're going to build a fence, and we're going to make the dingoes pay for it.

Yep, pretty much what I figured.

Fenced-off areas are babies as far as the eye can see...

Hey, I've had a kangaroo burger before. A bit gamier than venison, with an odd sweet flavor. Would probably be good mixed with another meat, but a little much on its own.

Best I have is: Kangaroo meat and salad.

If you haven't seen Rabbit Proof Fence, you should. I might watch it again later.

Why would you graze sheep in a desert?

Is it the dingoes, the kangaroos, or the grass that got this classified as "food"?

Kiler: Why would you graze sheep in a desert?


That's a great question.  If you care, and aren't just halfassedly trying to make a halfassed point you could do some googling about, well, anything really.  Maybe start with "how is babby made" and work up from there.

I watched the video and was struck by the fact that I obviously have no business looking at vegetation from satellite imagery because I had no idea what was what.

Especially since the Western Desert lives and breathes at 45 degrees.

Yeah, they pretty much had their conclusion in mind before they did the research and really reached to provide a nice visual to prove it.

It's a sticky situation.  I'd like to see some dingos back, but those sheep feed and clothe a lot of people, both directly and indirectly.

You can't see all the babies from orbit.
