…at the Central Market in Adelaide.
Kangaroo meat is produced in Australia from wild animals and in 2010 was exported to over 55 countries worldwide. Currently sourced from wild animals as a byproduct of population control programs, both the meat and the hides are sold. Although most species of macropod are protected from hunting by law, a small number of the large-sized species which exist in high numbers can be hunted by commercial hunters. This policy has been criticized by some animal rights activists. On the other hand, the kangaroo harvest is supported by a wide range of professional ecologists in Australia. “Tastes like venison….” says the butcher at the Central Market.
