Sarah, "most people" are ill-informed about the kangaroo. They mostly think of plush toys and Kanga and Roo from the Winnie-the-Pooh stories. They don't understand that they can be destructive creatures, that they are wild animals, and that they have been providing meat to humans for centuries. I would eat kangaroo, given the opportunity. I have had ostrich and was surprised it was a red meat. I also enjoy opportunity to consume the North American bison. I do not think it is a matter of hate; it is more a matter of lack of knowledge and understanding.
