To the Honourable the Speaker and members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled:

The humble petition of certain citizens of Australia respectfully showeth:

Thatindiscriminate slaughtering of the kangaroo species in Australia and the unnecessary cruelties to which these animals have been subjected, has disgusted Australian citizen and many people overseas. Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the House of Representatives urge the Australian Government to take immediate and appropriate action to ensure that wherever it is necessary for kangaroos to be killed or trapped, this be done by specially qualified and licensed governmental officers of the conservation departments, and that poisoning of all native fauna be prohibited.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray. by Mr Enderby.

Petition received.
