Put kangaroos, camels on Australian eco-menu: scientists

SYDNEY (AFP) – Saving the planet by eating kangaroos and wild camels may seem like pie in the sky, but the offbeat menu comes with a scientific stamp of approval in Australia.

The aim in both cases is to reduce damage to the environment, but the reasoning behind the push to put the animals on the menu is sharply different.

In the case of kangaroos, environmentalists say the national animal should become a dietary staple in place of cattle and sheep as part of the fight against global warming.

The farm animals make a major contribution to Australia's greenhouse gas emissions simply by belching and farting, while kangaroos emit negligible amounts of dangerous methane gas.

In other words, there should be more kangaroos and fewer farm animals.

"For most of Australia's human history -- around 60,000 years -- kangaroo was the main source of meat," the government's top climate change adviser Professor Ross Garnaut noted in a major report on global warming recently.

For most of human history, people didn't live beyond 30 because they died of the common fvcking cold.

Let's roll back all progress and go back to living like animals again.

Hey, it would greatly please Mother Earth.

Man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is.

If your animal meat is farting, you forgot to kill it.

Is that it? I thought you were supposed to eat while it was still fresh enough to bat it's lashes at you - you know the "blow it's nose, wipe it's @$$ and show it the fire" type of barbarianism.....

Do fish fart? :huh:

Kangaroos are pests in many parts of Australia. Guess it can't hurt to eat 'em after they kill them. Koala, too.

I think that totally wild camels are actually rare. Most are domesticated or offshoots of domesticated camels that got loose.

My brother lives up in Alaska and he's not shy about road kill, at least during the winter months. We got some moose steaks from him recently. I'll cook 'em but I'm vegetarian so won't eat 'em. Meh.

Believe it or not, there's a restaurant in Houston called Ziggy's Healthy Grill which has both Kangaroo and Ostrich on their menu as burger choices. I've never eaten there, but I'd like to -- if for no other reason, I can claim I've eaten "Kanga and Roo."

If you're in Houston and want to check it out, it's on West Alabama between Kirby and Shepherd.
