I've had ground kangaroo burgers. Kind of gamy, but quite edible.

How many kangaroos are in the area that it's important to pass any legislation concerning the sale of their parts?

Roo leather makes for really nice razor strops, and you can roll them without wrinkling the leather.

The commercial harvest of kangaroos in Australia is legal. More than 1.3 million kangaroos were killed for commercial purposes in the country in 2021, KLCC reported, citing the Australia Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water. The agency said that number represents less than one-third of the "sustainable quota," which is the amount it considers could be killed without putting any of the four main kangaroo species at risk.

Thank baby Jebus we're addressing this instead of any of the myriad other actual issues out there.

Is there market for upgraded kangaroo parts? I don't think limb replacement works like that. The human body would probably reject 'too legs right quick. I heard that... from a friend.

Not a good idea, Oregon. You don't want a black market for kangaroo parts. Kangaroo carcasses stripped of their parts lying about all willy-nilly. Legitimate kangaroo dealers going out of business. Cats and dogs living together.

ABSOLUTE CHAOS!

Not a pretty sight, believe you me!

What....did she ask Australia?  Last I heard the Australian government was encouraging people to eat more kangaroo because of overpopulation.

Kangaroo leather is very useful in some applications. We'll see if there are good alternatives

First Oregon legalizes drugs. Then they try to restrict gun sales. Now no kangaroo parts? Slippery slope I tells ya.

Either a issue with importing or local farmers don't like the exotic competition.

Mad Magazine had the perfect response to the "unconscionable" commenter (that I can't find) of a bunch of tree huggers protesting at a shooting range with signs that said "Save our Skeet from Extinction".

So you are saying that we shouldn't give a shiat about sustainable anything until your arbitrary list of "real important stuff" is fixed

What's it like only being able to see and think in black and white?

Personally, I subscribe to the notion that by keeping on doing the "right thing" in terms of sustainability regardless of application or industry, sooner or later sustainability will become the norm rather than the exception. And feckless doofs like you will feel very out of place and unwelcome in that world, since by then a good many issues would have been fixed, thanks to ignoring shiatposts like yours and continuing to do what is right and what we can, when we can

Kangaroos are a major pest species. Like rats are. No need to protect them.

Australia is pretty big on all agricultural production. The government there is "WTF??" at various US laws in recent years targeting kangaroo products.

It's just weird also as it's not like this is a pressing issue with a major groundswell of public pressure, nor does there seem to be any major industry pressure, and it's not like they're endangered.

I've only had kangaroo once, and IMHO, it didn't seem gamey at all...maybe that kangaroo had been on a better diet.

/Best venison I've had came from a deer that had chowed down on a lot of apples.

Slap a tariff on it like you did with lamb, you bastards (not Oregon bastards, federal bastards) so that our domestic kangaroo ranches can compete.

I'm not making any kind of larger point, other than this is immediately where my brain went and I can't think of another film that contains a kangaroo hunt.

Our left-wing idiots are big PETA supporters.  Our right-wing idiots are big QAnon supporters.  Those two groups represent 70% of this damn State.

Oregon is farking clownshoes.  If it weren't for the fantastic food, drink, and music here, there'd be nothing at all worth a damn.

Okay, that's not entirely true.  We've got some fantastic strip clubs, and we don't care about what a person looks like (unless they're brown) - we care whether they're doing their job.  Everybody is inked and wears whatever they want to the office.  Life is less-complicated here.  It's just pants-on-head mentally-challenged.

My former brother in law swears by Kangaroo hide baseball and softball gloves, they are softer to start and don't need as much break in time. He played some minor ball, was on the all Navy Softball team, and played in rec leagues for as long as I knew him. He had a 20 year old glove that was so soft it crumpled up like a batting glove when he tossed it down on the bench.

No, I'm saying if Australia's equivalent of the EPA is saying that they're harvesting less than a third of the sustainable quota of kangaroos, that this is NOT a sustainability issue, it's just feelgood bullshiat from a politician.

I rewatched it not too long ago, it's still an amazing film. I love Donald Pleasance.

It's worse than that.  They are an animal adapted for arid and semi-arid regions, where grass and water are scarce.

When us whities arrived in Australia, we cleared trees to create grassland, and put in a gazillion water sources for cattle.  The kangaroo population did exactly what you would expect - exploded.
