Call to extend kangaroo pet food program to Gippsland

The Coalition is putting pressure on the state government to implement a permanent kangaroo pet food program across the state.

A trial has been underway for a few years and Gippsland East MP Tim Bull says he'd like to see it extended to Gippsland.

"This trial has been successful in other areas of the state," Mr Bull said.

"It would be terrific to expand it into Gippsland where farmers have had to control kangaroos in reasonable numbers.

"We may as well use that meat for a good purpose.

"It would create employment opportunities and it would make use of this kangaroo meat."

Environment minister Lily D'Ambrosio says the trial is still being reviewed.
