I would hazard a guess that you are confusing " Kangaroo culling " with Koalas.
Kangaroos are often culled due to huge numbers competing with cash crops or other grazing ruminants.
It is also humane to keep the numbers reasonable, as we live in an often drought affected envoironment, with the upshot being many 'roos just end up dying of thirst.
They are also a staple of many or most working dogs in this country as well as a growingly popular source of lean protein for Human consumption. ( dont' eat it myself though )
Koalas are cuddly and cute and we do not eat them. ( not me anyway ... too scared of the drop bears! )edit on 29-11-2012 by Timely because: (no reason given)

I wish I had Koalas in my backyard. They would be much more pleasant than skunks.

I usually get a lot of kangaroos at dawn and dusk, rabbits, foxes, etc. Too see this one it was a bit of a surprise, as I've never seen one before. Never seen a skunk though...
