Ok…I am not going to win any friends with this post but here goes. Today’s Sydney Morning Herald carries a story with the above actual heading and the story below. What I find amusing about this story is the description of the driver as ‘hit-and-run’ perp ! I mean ….what part of KANGAROOS ARE A FUCKING MENACE TO NATURE doesn’t the rest of the world get ? I would like to release 10 breeding pairs of Big Reds in the heartland of European agricultural land and see how they feel in 5 years time when the ground is threadbare and roos outnumber people 500 to 1.
Struth, over here in Australia we run over Kangaroos in our 4x4s to save the $1 cost of a bullet.
Two of Belgrade Zoo’s kangaroos died on Wednesday, one of them a baby that got loose in downtown Belgrade and was killed by an apparent hit-and-run driver ( Well done that Man !! – one case of Lasko Pivo beer and a lifelong membership the the RSPCA awaits…. ), police said.Witnesses spotted the ( flattened ) joey and called authorities, but by the time officers arrived it was dead, senior officer Zeljko Perosevic said. The baby kangaroo had apparently escaped from the nearby zoo, he said.”Unfortunately, there was nothing we could do,” Perosevic said.
( Yeah except build a higher fence you moron)
Perosevic said that the zoo then called to say that another kangaroo had been found dead there. He said an investigation, including autopsies, is under way to determine what happened.The zoo said later that someone had jumped into a kangaroo cage, killed the mother and stole its baby.”This is a classic example of vandalism,” ( er no….it’s case of roo napping. At any rate – after we have run over a roo in Oz we humanely knock the joey on the head with a tyre iron as it won’t survive without it’s mum. ) visibly shaken zoo director Vuk Bojovic said. He appealed to the police to find and punish the culprits.
A year ago, a kangaroo at the Belgrade zoo dropped her baby from her pouch after being scared by an emu and refused to let the tiny creature climb back in ( what absolute horseshit ). The zoo requested help to get special kangaroo milk from Australia, the United States and Germany.It was not clear whether they were the same kangaroos that died on Wednesday.
