Legislative Assembly for the ACT: Week 8 Hansard (5 August) . . Page.. 3619..

  • Most kangaroo collisions occur along arterial roadways where there is little human contact. Scavenging birds will normally clean up carcasses not picked up by rangers relatively quickly, particularly in summer when carcasses decay very quickly

    • The smell associated with decay of animals killed in closely settled areas if left would be unpleasant to any nearby residents. Removal of these animals is always a priority.

    • One reason why carcasses are removed, apart from the concerns for public safety, is so that the pouches of females can be inspected and any joeys humanely dealt with rather than allow them to suffer a slow death from hyperthermia or starvation.

(8) Kangaroos are not the property of the ACT Government however the general public are advised through the media of the need to take care when driving.
