This book reveals how Australia's primary nation icon, the kangaroo, is being deliberately and systematically slaughtered right in front of our eyes. At the time of writing, the so-called "legal" killing of kangaroos in Australia has reached 6 million, which when added to the unrecorded "illegal" killings certainly represents a slaughter of mass proportion. Australia's national icon has been betrayed and if this controversial book opens the global public eyes to this problem, then it has made a good start in addressing this widely ignored issue. If you are a supporter of wildlife issues or an Australian you must read this book.
€œWithout reservation, I support the Australian groups fighting to save the kangaroo. The killing is a disgrace - cruel and entirely profit motivated. The kangaroo is one of Australia's original inhabitants, deserving both respect and protection.€ Paul McCartney
