A devastating video shows the grim reality kangaroos are facing and is calling for Australians to help with a simple solution. 

They’re on our coat of arms, and have long been considered a symbol of Australia, but kangaroos are now almost double the human population.

Ecologists Katherine Moseby and John Read feature in a short film showing the gruesome effect drought is having on the marsupials.

The pair is now calling for them to be harvested in an effort to stop kangaroos from dying in such a cruel way, from starvation and thirst.

Only about 15 per cent of Australians eat kangaroo meat an average of four times a year.

Dr Moseby tells Ben Fordham people should not be swayed by human rights groups and should instead support the harvesting of these animals.

“Human rights groups say it’s not ethical… but that’s not what the science is saying.

“The science is saying eating kangaroo is one of the best things you can do for the environment and animal welfare.”
