In response to an explosion in the population of wild kangaroos in Australia, environmental experts believe there may be only one solution: people need to eat them.
The strange call to action comes as the number of kangaroos in the country has reached nearly 50 million, meaning that there are now almost two of the creatures for every human living in Australia, which boasts a population of around 27 million.
An increased amount of available food for the animals, due to favorable weather conditions, is being blamed for the skyrocketing number of kangaroos, which increased by an astounding 23 million in just seven years.
In turn, ecologists say that the most sensible and pragmatic way to stop the country from being overrun by kangaroos is for Australians to begin incorporating the animal into their menu at home.
