Three months after staging a G'day Australia promo in LA, Tourism Australia are copping accusations of animal cruelty after a video (taken by a Kiwi woman), has come to light showing a kangaroo used in the promo that was left in a cage for two days.

Caged roo video

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has described as "pretty off" a video of a Tourism Australia campaign which involves a kangaroo being kept in a cage on a busy Los Angeles street.

Anger over caged roo stunt

Tourism Australia have tried to play down the obvious distress of the roo, but one can only hope that they face charges for this stupidity. This really isn't the way we should be representing our country overseas.

The roo was probably just seeking residence in Australia. It's standard practice to cage incomers you know.
