Ages Mary, a young Aboriginal girl, lives on a red and dusty cattle station. Shunned by the other girls because of her fair skin, Old Ned, one of the community elders, finally speaks up. He teaches the girls that Aboriginal identity Susie is supposed to write about what she wants to be when she grows up.
But she doesn't have a clue! When she has a series of puzzling dreams, Gran encourages her to think about their deeper meaning and Susie soon finds she knows The kangaroo family includes more than 70 species, four of which are legally hunted in designated harvest areas. He does have a few options. One is the commercial harvest. Graziers can allow licensed shooters to cull groups of kangaroos, called mobs, on their land. But as demand for kangaroo products has waned—in part because of publicity efforts by animal welfare organizations—the industry has been taking only a fraction of the annual cull allowed.
Another option is cluster fencing. Graziers with adjacent properties can band together and erect a government-subsidized fence around their farms. But critics say the barriers cruelly snare kangaroos, illegally hinder their access to water, and disrupt the migratory routes of other native animals. The final option is simple execution.
A grazier can apply for a permit that authorizes killing a specific number of animals. At the time of my visit, Zanker had one to cull roos. But many graziers with permits hire amateur shooters with no training or accreditation, unlike the marksmen employed and monitored by the industry. That creates its own problems, including thousands of maimed roos each year. And the bank wants its money. What would you do in that situation? Go and give the keys to the bank manager?
Or go and buy a box of bullets? As the sun goes down in rural Queensland, Brad Cooper goes to work. The stout kangaroo shooter pulls his truck off the road and into a paddock about 20 miles east of Mitchell. And neither do they. Commercial shooters have to pass a marksmanship test and receive training on animal welfare and hygiene. Each month they have to report the details of their work to ensure that no harvest exceeds the quota.
Cooper is 41 years old. He shot his first kangaroo when he was five. Today he works three nights a week, for six to eight hours at a time. His goal this evening is to kill 30 roos.

His single-night record is As ragged clouds scuttle overhead, the half-moon plays peekaboo in the night sky. A sharp smell of saltbush fills the air. Cooper sweeps the lights on his truck back and forth, back and forth. Cooper drives to the fallen roo. He yanks the carcass onto the truck bed and hangs it by a rear leg. Working with practiced efficiency, he bleeds the animal, then eviscerates it, inspecting the carcass for lesions or parasites that would compromise its market value.
Next comes paperwork: Every shooter must record the date and time of each kill, the name of the property, the species, and all the other information required by the food processor and the state authority. He gets paid 70 cents per kilogram for field-dressed carcasses. Some nights he can make a thousand dollars.

But we are. Eastern grays blend into the brush at Grampians National Park. Kangaroos have an age-old knack for survival, as cave paintings from 20, years ago attest. Hopping—an efficient way to move at speed for long stretches—helped them flee their foes better than four-legged megafauna that are now extinct. Howard Ralph, a tall, trim doctor, sits in his drafty waiting room and describes another kind of responsibility for kangaroos.
Today, aided by a small army of volunteers, Southern Cross Wildlife Care treats more than 2, animals a year. Over half are kangaroos. That means treating pain and managing stress, which can be fatal issues. Kangaroos, especially eastern grays, get stressed easily and can develop kidney failure and heart disease. They also see a lot of cruelty: kangaroos that have been shot in the face, hit with an ax, deliberately run over by a truck.
We should be beyond the point where cruelty is acceptable. Under any circumstances.
