Each night, Rob Gallina and his teen son load their rifles, set up the truck and go out to clear the land of kangaroos.

They’re professional roo harvesters, employed by farmers to rid their properties of the so-called pest. Around 3 million wild roos and nearly 900,000 joeys are killed each year for meat.

It’s considered a sustainable alternative to livestock, but activists say the methods used to kill them are inhumane. So, should these Aussie icons be nurtured or culled?

Presented by Marc Fennell, Alice Matthews and Alex Lee, the multi Walkley Award-winning program continues to break new ground with its compelling mix of current affairs and comedy, interviews, and investigations.

The Feed, Episode six airs Tuesday, 20 April at 10.00pm on SBS and On Demand
