Drivingroo their bug-eyed utes, the upright apes head into

the bush with a beer in hand and rifles behind the seat.

I see a T-shirt: ‘I kill for fun’. They are going kangaroo shooting.

They come out at night and drive around looking for their prey.

When a kangaroo is caught in their spot-lights it freezes, and

 the upright apes fire their rifles and crossbows.

A bullet blows the head off a kangaroo and they cheer. A 

crossbow bolt lodges in the side of a kangaroo, but it manages

 to slowly hop away. And they guffaw, it’s sooo funny.

The roos are a pest mate.

No, you are the pest upright ape.

It’s just a bit of fun mate.

Ah yes, inflicting pain and death on another creature for no reason other than . . . . it’s fun for you. I see. The gunman

at Port Arthur is known to have said exactly the same thing.

We’re hunters just like thousands of years ago. It’s just us and the animals. Nothing wrong with that mate.

Mmmm, I see the similarities. An early human hunting a mammoth with a spear, so that they can eat, and you

killing a defenceless kangaroo with a high-powered weapon for fun. Got it! And I know you gotta watch out

 for those kangaroos: they’ve got tusks and fangs and sing karaoke, you’d be lucky to escape with your life man.

Roo shooting is what passes for initiation into manhood for the white Australian male. But no ceremony here: the

Australian male is too stupid to know and too drunk to remember.

I’d like to see the so-called ‘hunters’ who kill for fun and trophies,  swim in a creek in North Queensland with a 4

metre salt-water crocodile, armed only with a knife.

Ohh, that’s a bit too fair mate.
