The killing of kangaroos results high welfare costs for all kangaroos. There is a growing awareness internationally of the government sanctioned cruelty towards kangaroos.
IKPA’s key welfare concerns relate to:
> The millions of kangaroos and wallabies killed each year for commercial and non-commercial purposes;
> Intentional killing of kangaroos by shooting and poisoning;
>The fate of joeys after their mothers have been killed
> Impacts of shooting and fencing on kangaroo mobs;
> Lack of monitoring and enforcement of the Code of Practice at the point of kill.
