I would certainly have nothing against eating kangaroo, unless I heard there were inhumane practices involved.

Exactly Tom...if cooked for a short time, it is very tender

But like some meats, like steak for example, if cooked too long it goes tougher an drier

There are quite a few restaurants in America that serve exotic meats from other lands. Along with bison, and bear they serve ostrich, kangeroo, and other meats from far off lands. On this continent we eat moose, deer, possum, squirrel, raccoon, wild boar, reindeer, etc. It all depends on what you grew up with. I am sure we would find some of the meats available to Snip13 to be very strange indeed.

In answer to a question I once posed to her, she listed some of the animals we see on the plains in pictures as being found in the meat section of her supermarket. They still have tribes in Africa that have to hunt daily for their meals. Not all the wild animals live in protected parks.

I had Springbok jerky a few years ago, brought back from South Africa by a co-worker.

Personally, I don't eat any wild things primarily because I don't need to, if I did, I likely would. Are Roos raised in Oz to be eaten, or are we talking wild ones? Just wondering.

I unknowingly ate alligator once in NO and it tasted disgusting before I even knew what it was. The nasty taste of "fishy chicken" still lingers in my mind.

From what I have read and seen in reports, 'Roos are becoming a big problem in cities in Austrailia. Hitting one in your car is worse than hitting a deer here. They can do some serious damage. They are also in competition for the grasslands with sheep. And now with the wildfires racing across the land, they will be even more problems. The future doesn't bode well for the kangeroos.

Yes I have tried it they do it at food markets, for example at Christmas we have the continental markets and with that comes food stalls from around the world. Had a kangaroo burger but wasn't too fussy on it. Not because it was a kangaroo that doesn't bother me, just that it wasn't a great taste, same with ostrich .

I had some at the Gilroy Garlic Festival here in Calif a few years back.
It was lime marinated and cooked on skewers on a bbq.
I did ok with the first bite then started thinking" I am eating a giant marsupial"
and couldnt eat any more.
