First 90 Kangaroos released in Wyoming
POSTED ON APRIL 1, 2017

(Dubois, Wyo) – The Wyoming Wild Game Department (WWGD) partnering with the Wyoming Migration Initiative (WMI) have released the first of 5 planned batches of 90 Antilopine Kangaroos into the Wyoming outdoors.

Dubbed “Project Sage Hopper” by the WWGD team responsible for evaluating the viability of Wyoming’s habitat for Australian marsupials, it has been in the planning stages for 3 years. The goal is two-fold: Create new and interesting wildlife viewing opportunities for tourists, and in several years, potentially provide additional hunting opportunities.



“Antilopine means ‘antelope-like, so we are interested to see how these kangeroos adapt to Wyoming’s wild landscapes,” WMI Director Matt Kauffman said. “If they start migrating, we’ll be tracking their movements, looking to see how they learn to exploit the sage steppe and the mountains, where they ‘hopover,’ those sorts of things.”


Wyoming Migration Initiative team welcomes the first wild kangaroo to touch down on Wyoming soil.




16 hour trans-Pacific flight for the jet-lagged kangaroo.

“This wasn’t an easy project; the international permitting in particular was a huge hassle. Identifying a species that would meet our goals and be able to thrive in Wyoming’s strongly seasonal habitat.” added Kauffman. “If we can get these Aussie macropods established and breeding, they are likely to thrive with continued climate change in Wyoming’s already semi-arid climate. Additionally, we believe with their large hind legs, they’ll be able to effectively defend themselves from coyotes, wolves and other predators. Trust me: You don’t want to be kicked by one of these animals.”


Even as they hope for the successful establishment of Wyoming’s newest large mammal, researchers aren’t giving up on the native big game that so many Wyomingite’s cherish. “Research is needed now more than ever to identify and map the critical habitats that migratory big game require,” Kauffman added.

With a successful introduction of kangaroos into Wyoming’s ecosystem, WMI will review other opportunities for the state to be home to other marsupial species. A short-list for future proposed introductions include the koala, wallaby and the endangered Tasmanian Devil.

"Coyotes and Wolves:

You'll be neighbors"

Heard grumbling:
"There goes the neighborhood"
"Who needs more foreigners?"

Completely F-ing retarded.
Hhhmmm in mans history when introducing non-indigenous species, and those attached to larger host,
FAILURE is guaranteed, ripple effect monstrous, and taxpayer cost unfathomable !
When do the F-Tards(humans) who are seen in these pictures come in season?
Bunch of camel humping liberal jackass snowflake stooges.
Put the collars on them, and make 'em run for it.
I'd give 'em 30 minutes and use my bow.
I pray as I string up my bow this is April fools joke, cuz it is stupid human enough to be real but not.

April Fool's joke.
Of course. And I was thinking of a counter joke about sending prairie dogs and porcupines to Australia to help them counter their problems.

DID you SEE the size of that Cat ?
When a cat can look straight into the eyes of a coyote I'd the cat has more than a punchers chance to win. Especially solitary 'yotes.
A pack of 'yotes is a different matter altogether.

LOL...

Just as well, you let Roo's loose in the USA and you would deeply regret it! Those cute feckers will bounce all over the locals and eat them outta house and home!

We have Echidnas, plenty of spikes already thanks.

We also have cane toads that some dumb fucks bought into the country ages ago after a 'study'. Now they are a plague... every Aussie now knows that there is no way that anyone is risking that type of mistake again! Not to mention Rabbits and Foxes, plenty of regrets in the animal import department.

Maybe we could send you some armadillos to get rid of the cane toads!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Sounds fair, Send them a Leprosy infected animal to TRY to eliminate a toad with poisonous skin.

The US was not immune to importer fails: Starlings, Asian Grass Carp, Snakeheads, Walking Catfish, Pythons, feral hogs, Faucet Snails (Great Lakes), Kudzu, just naming the few I know off the top of my head.

As usual Man is his own Worse Enemy.

Will this ever end?



APRIL 1, 2017 BY MR.SALTY
The 90 Kangaroos released in Wyoming are already causing problems in Utah



Coalville, Utah- This morning county10.com broke the story that 90 kangaroos were released in Dubois, Wyoming.

Not long after the kangaroos found their way to Utah. They were spotted around Echo Reservoir. Kangaroos are fond of fish, birds and have plenty of greens to eat. Hyrum Tolman of the Utah DWR thinks they will hang around the area for along time and start breeding.



When the kangaroos made their way to Coalville, that’s when the trouble started. Kangaroos happen to be very fond of beer. Problem is, they are billegerent drunks. Reports are pouring in of drunken Kangaroos breaking into houses, stealing food, beer, and whatever else they can get their paws on.



Jed Cummings, a Coalville resident said “I went outside today to go to work and noticed broken glass on the ground by my truck. The kangaroos stole a few CDS from my collection. They were pretty selective about what they took. Men at Work, Midnight Oil, AC-DC, Keith Urban, Olivia Newton John and Crowded House CDs. They only took CDs made by Australian bands. That’s when I knew it was the damn kangaroos!”



Emma Smith, of Echo said “They broke into my home and stole twinkies, beer and a BMX Bandits VHS tape. I guess they like shitty Nicole Kidman movies.”




Kangaroos have been known to box and fight. Unfortunately, adrunk kangaroo is 10 times worse. Here’s two kangaroos fighting in the streets of Coalville.




Kangaroos are also being struck by cars. Here’s a dashcam video of a kangaroo being struck by a car off of I-80 East.



Wyoming obiously made a big mistake releasing these kangaroos into to the wild. Day one and these kangaroos are causing nothing but trouble.



Do not approach the kangaroos, they are dangerous and love to fight.



We will bring you more on this story as it develops.
