VIVA, or the Vegetarians International Voice for Animals, are picking a fight with Pete Garrett about the planned culling of 400 kangaroos on government property in Canberra.The Minister for the Beds are Burning is being made to sweat by none other than Sir Paul McCartney, who has urged Australians to protect kangaroos from ‘a barbaric industry that slaughters them for meat.’ Quite what business it is of Sir Paul, who lives on the other side of the planet, will have to remain a mystery. Or Chrisse Hynde for that matter. Or Heather McCartney.
McCartney’s message of loving the ‘roo was posted on the website, www.savethekangaroo.com.. This site helpfully points out that 6.5 million kangaroos are legally culled every year.
And we are arguing about 400?
The whole animal rights movement is as bonkers as the Vatican’s ‘Sins and Penances’ Chief.
