I also have no qualms about eating feral animals that don't belong in our environment, and I'm also OK with kangaroo because they are far from being endangered and in fact are probably present in the Australian environment in far greater numbers than in pre-European times because of the provision of permanent water in the Outback.

There is a valid argument about the ecological footprint of farming meat as opposed to farming plant-based foods though.
