I don't agree with what Greenpeace says about the Roo damaging the environment through global warming...next they'll be telling us they're damaging the environment by farting too much...gimmie a break. lol! The Roo is/has been 'native' to Australia from the start, 'why now' bring all this up(?) Although i agree with the human consumption side of it though, because Roo meat is a lot more beneficial to our health than beef/lamb/pork, the export market is growing big time. I've eaten it a few times myself and agree with Kaz, it's the richer leaner version of beef just a touch more on the sweeter ... [More]

Kangaroo is actually very good. I for one wish regular grocery stores would have more variety in the meats they sell. I would love to be able to pick up kangaroo, ostrich, venison, bison, rabbit, etc. during my weekly visits. As it stands now, unless I go to a specialty shop, I'm stuck with fish, beef, pork, turkey, chicken and lamb.

Um, the article was actually saying that Australians are being ENCOURAGED to eat roo, because they DON'T create methane gases. It was the cows and sheep that Greenpeace was saying created global warming because of emitting methane gases, and clearing land for them to graze. I hope that clears a few things up. lol! thanks for that. I said i agree with the human consumption of Roo FJ. Secondly i was being sarcastic about the Roos farting & destroying the environment lol! It just bothers me a little whenever ever i hear environmentalists bring up an 'pathetic excuse' such as animals destroyin... [More]

You people are sick mamals (that makes you cannibals)! how can you be a cannibal if you are eating another species? if you take it where i think you are going to it's furthest, eating plants/vegetation would be cannibalism wouldn't it?

Eating roos is gonna caused more problems. Why? they won't kill the farting animals. I don't understand this ideas...i'm confused...totally.

No plants are not animals, if you eat another mammal, that makes you a cannibal. The whole world is confused, and they refuse to step out of thier little bubble of saftey and ingorance, they don't want to know what's really going on in the world, because the don't want to risk their morgage or 9 to 5

You are what you eat. If you eat only vegetables, you are a vegetable, and are thus a cannibal for eating them. Makes as much sense as what you are saying. --- I'd eat a roo.
