Staff at Warroo Game Meats unload kangaroos from a freezer truck. The workers arrived at Warroo Game Meats shortly before 5am to start unloading and processing kangaroos that have been brought in by individual hunters, but also on freezer trucks from middle men, who buy and sell kangaroos. The indigenous run business Warroo Game Meats has been harvesting kangaroos for meat and skins for over 50 years, employing over 30 people. A recent bill introduced into the US House of Representatives proposing to ban the importation of kangaroo products has Australian producers concerned for the future of the industry.
