In response to an explosion in the population of wild kangaroos in  Australia, environmental experts believe there may be only one solution:  people need to eat them.

The strange call to action comes as the number of kangaroos in the  country has reached nearly 50 million, meaning that there are now almost  two of the creatures for every human living in Australia, which boasts a  population of around 27 million.

An increased amount of available food for the animals, due to favorable  weather conditions, is being blamed for the skyrocketing number of  kangaroos, which increased by an astounding 23 million in just seven  years.

In turn, ecologists say that the most sensible and pragmatic way to stop  the country from being overrun by kangaroos is for Australians to begin  incorporating the animal into their menu at home.
