Kangaroo Cull – Australia

Several nature preserves around the Australian Capital Territory will be closed from late afternoon until dawn through Aug. 1 so as many as 2,000 eastern gray kangaroos can be killed.

Officials say an overabundance of the marsupials can have a devastating impact on the local environment.

But the cull has been denounced by animal-rights advocates who say the killing is cruel, and the methods used often cause the animals to suffer.
