Jamie and I have often wished we owned enough land to “run a herd of ‘roos” (as they might say in Texas). According to this map, they’re illegal in most states, but we’re good to go in Tejas. All we need is a permit. Sorry, Californians, you’re out of luck.
But about that permit. Which bureaucratic can of spaghetti do you dive into to get a kangaroo permit? The Texas Department of Kangaroos? The Marsupial Management Authority? The Kangaroo Commission?
And then there’s this: Jamie reminded me that male kangaroos get really big and really vicious. And when I say big, I mean “looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger jacked up on steroids” big. Here’s a real, unretouched photo of Roger, Australia’s most famous male kangaroo.
Maybe one dog and two cats is really all we need.
