Howard Springs Pet Meat Supplies, based in Australia's Northern Territory, wants to use culled animals from Australia's Kakadu National Park as ingredients in its petfood, according to reports.
The petfood manufacturer says it already collects feral animals from cattle stations and some other nationals parks run by the local government. The company's director, Peter Halse, says the culled animals are rotting in Kakadu National Park, but his recent application to use feral animals shot in Kakadu was denied.
"There's a huge amount that gets wasted and they're the animals that we're after that could be used," Halse said. "We put a proposal in the pay for these animals, pay royalties to the traditional owners, plus utilize the meat."
