It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy

I always heard that kangaroos are huge pests because there are billions of them.

Like anything, 'roos can stress the environment if they develop excessive numbers, and they can be serious pests for farmers at times, damaging crops etc.

We raised a couple of orphaned joeys when I was a kid on the farm. Funny little critters - hung in a hessian bag from the towel rail adjacent to the fuel stove to keep them warm. They need modified milk formulation and a teat with the hole at the side, their throat doesn't regulate a direct stream well, at least when they're little.

We didn't keep them long - a cousin of my Dad's kept pets & they joined them.

They taste great too. And way healthier than Pork Beef Lamb or Chicken.

Except when we discovered a tail we were going to use for soup, was full of worms...
We stopped using wild-killed roo.
