Roo row latest

This week's Loddon Herald has the latest on a campaign by kangaroo activists to stop a pet meat processing plant opening at Inglewood.

We have stories from the activists and also speak with professional shooters and a director of the company that has applied for a permit at the former abattoirs.

KANGAROOS harvested in the region last week have been chilled at Inglewood.

The roos were stored in the PrimeSafe accredited coolroom at the former abattoir site from Sunday until transported to Hay on Tuesday.

Campaspe Meats director Loc Rivett said the local site was a licensed field depot.

“They’ve now been taken to Hay, 325km away, for processing,” he said.

“It makes no sense to have to transport them so far and into another state. The facility here is ultra efficient.”

ACTIVIST groups including PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) have prepared petitions against the proposed kangaroo pet food processing plant at Inglewood.

They claim to have gathered thousands of signatures from supporters in Australia and overseas
