Australia may put Kangaroos on fertility drugs instead of killing 2000

Nature lovers in Australia are strongly condemning the plan to kill kangaroos to suppress their population, and they believe that a more humane method should be adopted to combat this issue.

Instead of killing, they are suggesting the idea of putting Kangaroos on fertility drugs which will prevent them from breeding. The drug will cost just 15 Australian dollars, and it will prevent the kangaroos from conceiving for the next five years.

Daniel Iglesias, Director of Parks and Conservation told that tests are going on to test the efficiency of these drugs. He believes that success in drug testing will help them to control the increasing population of grey kangaroos in the most effective manner.

The increase in the population of grey Kangaroos in Australia has been creating end number of problems, and to combat this, Australian Government has decided to kill more than 1900 Kangaroos across the Australian Capital Territory.

The natural vegetation of the country has faced negative impacts due to the rising population of Kangaroos, and this alarming fact compelled to Government to opt for mass culling.

At this juncture, readers should understand that more than 4000 Kangaroos have been killed in the last two years to curb the population.

Daniel Iglesias, added that this move is inevitable and as it will lead to de-vegetation if remains uncontrolled. He also added that this is not about eradication, but about maintaining sustainable numbers of eastern grey kangaroos.

This is not the first time that the Australian Government is adopting the mass culling strategy. Last year, officials targeted feral cats to save endangered species like the Night Parrot. They justified the killing by stating that cats are the major culprits behind the extinction of many species.
