As the article states, seals and penguins would be pretty much out of luck.

Interesting way to cut down on greenhouse gases. We serve kangaroo at the restaurant I work at but it's only 1 dish of the hundred or so that we have. Kangaroos are pretty easy to breed, no danger of them going extinct and they don't destroy land like the hooved livestock do.

Dude in the article says, "It tastes excellent, not unlike venison - only a different flavour." So I guess gamey? Pablo and/or Bunyip, have you ever tried it?

I thought kangaroo were considered vermin in some parts of that country due to overpopulation.

I still haven't seen any numbers on the cow farts epidemic. I view it with a bit of skepticism.

Yes definitely, pretty much anywhere that you have cleared pasture land you're almost certain to find kangaroos. Been out Roo Shooting with uncles and family friends that own farms, they usually use them for dog meat though, from what I've seen.

It does taste more gamy (gamey?), but I haven't had venison in years to compare it. I might order the kangaroo for lunch today at work. I'll try to get back with my results. :-)

Yeah, they went with someone else who had more experience. My brother said he'd keep helping me getting a job up there though.

I don't think I've ever had venison so I'm not sure how to compare it, but I've had kangaroo steaks and strips before at restaurants and it's pretty nice. It was maybe a bit tougher than beef and a stronger flavour but nothing bad. I think it probably takes some skill to cook well. The best kangaroo I've had was minced with a bunch of other stuff and served in lettuce leaves.

Oh, I did have kangaroo for lunch that day. Wasn't any tougher than a beef steak. Was marinated in plum and red wine jus though, so that may have contributed.
Was delicious.

There's been alot of recent news in this realm but no one seems to care anymore. No one? I like conversations on it but it's near impossible to find any sort of non fanatic on the internet to talk about it with.

I was reading in CNN that the recent disbelief, in this country at least, is in part because of political winds re-equiliberating.

I don't get how scientist have such a bad rap from the public lately. it can't all be anti science religious fundies - there were plenty of them around when scientists were treated like goddamn rock stars and the space shots were as big a deal as elvis.

Who knows, that could be a large portion of it. Look at religion demographics, population densities, and then realize that people will trust the pastor that baptized their children over a scientist they do not know.


Though the CNN article I was reading basically said it was because the political wind is now heavily democrat, and as such people will realign accordingly. It was interesting as a sociological theory. Basically disestablishmentarianism reigning supreme.
