It is renowned for constantly ambushing road users, especially truckies and 'grey-nomads' who defy danger to travel the long and lonely roads that traverse Australia.
However, they can be be tamed. It is quite common to see people riding them to work or school. We even have dedicated kangaroo parking bays and 'kangaroo washes'.
To stimulate Australia's economy, PM Kevin Rudd is considering a tax cut and reduced stamp duty on all kangaroos. He is also considering an international kangaroo trade program. So Yanks and Poms, don't be jealous! Soon, you too will be able to have your own Chevroo or Aston Roo!
