THE QUATA FOR KILLING THESE BEAUTIFUL ANIMALS FOR 2009 WAS SET AT 4 MILLION, THE REAL TOTAL IS MORE LIKE 8 MILLION IF YOU ADD ALL THE ILLEGAL KILLINGS.AROUND 70MILLION HAVE BEEN KILLED IN THE LAST 10 YEARS.THIS IS THE LARGEST LAND BASED MASSACRE OF AN ANIMAL ON THE PLANET.A MULTI MILLION DOLLAR BUSINESS FOR THE AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT,ABOUT 50% GOES TO THE MEAT MARKET AND THE OTHER 50% TO THE LEATHER TRADE.THE USA AND ITALY ARE THE BIGGEST IMPORTERS OF THIS LEATHER.THE WORST OFFENDERS ARE ADIDAS,NIKE AND REEBOK.SO THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU BUY YOUR NEXT PAIR OF RUNNING SHOES.This gallery is dedicated to all the beautiful roos that will be slaughtered in the coming months.The creatures I am posting in this portfolio will more than likely not be alive by the end of the year.Australia has an atrocious record when it comes to the slaughter of their national icon.These beautiful creatures are now being killed at a rate three times faster than they are reproducing.The nation should hang its head in shame.UPDATE ON THE FATE OF THESE ROOS.I HAVE JUST BEEN INFORMED THAT 600 OF THEM WERE KILLED OVER THE LAST 3 NIGHTS.MANY WERE FEMALES WITH JOEYS IN THEIR POUCHES.
