Would you eat kangaroo on Australia Day?

kangaroo meat

A Deakin University researcher is calling on more Aussies to honour their country ... by eating kangaroo.

Dr Euan Ritchie is an ecologist from the School of Life and Environmental Science and says the animals holding up our coat of arms have adapted to the harsh Aussie climate and do not contribute to soil degradation.

He also argues that roo meat has less fat and cholesterol than cattle and is quicker to cook.
