“Kangaroo, a love-hate story” is coming soon in European cinemas

European citizens are not aware of the enormous suffering behind kangaroo meat. Yet Belgium, France, Germany, and the Netherlands are the world’s largest importers of kangaroo meat with annual totals up to 1,000 tons of meat, equivalent to approximately 1 million animals.

The eye-opening documentary ‘Kangaroo: a love-hate story’ is coming soon in European cinemas (Vienna, Bristol, The Hague, Berlin, London, Paris, Strasbourg and Barcelona) to show the hidden truth behind the massive and horrendous kangaroo slaughter, exposing major food safety and animal welfare concerns.


With regard to animal welfare, research confirms that those joeys that manage to escape their ordeal, are left in the field to suffer exposure, starvation, or predation when the mother is killed. Unofficial reports indicate over 110,000 joeys died from commercial shooting alone in 2015. This massive shooting and its subsequent consequences for the offspring puts the future of the hunted kangaroo species at risk.

With animals being shot and eviscerated in the dark, subsequent long travel time to a chilling facility under warm desert conditions and long holding periods before the meat is actually processed, compliance with the most basic hygiene rules seems unrealistic. Independent testing of retail kangaroo meat in Australia has regularly found unacceptable pathogenic contamination which has lead countries like Russia to ban kangaroo meat imports for a third time.
