Social media erupted when Luke Bryan revealed his Christmas present to his wife: two baby kangaroos. The two joeys were additions to Brett’s Barn, a farm Bryan and his wife created which hosts animals in need.
Entertainment Tonight reports that PETA released a statement on Friday calling out Bryan:
“Baby kangaroos belong in their mothers’ pouches, not in gift bags. These joeys have complex needs, including specialized diets and room to roam — they are not toys and will only become more difficult to care for as they grow older. PETA is calling for an investigation into where these kangaroos came from and stands ready to help Luke Bryan right this wrong and move these vulnerable marsupials to a reputable sanctuary.”
People on Twitter also criticized the gift idea.
Luke Bryan gave his wife two baby kangaroos for Christmas. I’m super curious what someone does with a kangaroo as a pet, let alone two.. those things are vicious. If you have a pet kangaroo success story HMU.
