Protesters vow to act as 'human shields' to protect kangaroos during ACT cull
Updated Thu Jun 6, 2013 7:47pm AEST

Animal rights activists have vowed to act like "human shields" to protect eastern grey kangaroos during the ACT's annual cull.

The State Government plans to cull 1,455 animals this year - thought to be the lowest number for a cull since 2010.

It says the cull is needed to ensure grasslands and woodlands are not overgrazed, protect threatened species and ecosystems, and prevent erosion.

Carolyn Drew from ACT Animal Liberation says her group will try everything to stop the operation.

"When we know there's definitely a shoot on and we have signals that give us that indication, we'll send a team in to try and find the shooters and literally stand between the shooters guns and the kangaroos," she said.

Emily Gray, who gathered with other protesters today at the ACT Assembly, says shooting the kangaroos is a cruel option.

"It makes me sick to the stomach ... they just go out and night and they just kind of spray it everywhere the bullets, it's just disgusting, and they're just left to die," she said.
