Yes, I’ve eaten roo. It is available from the supermarket but what I had had been hunted. I was doing some work at one of the local Aboriginal communities and was there at lunch time. Their canteen had made kangaroo rissoles. Prior to this I had only fed it to my dogs. The meat absolutely reeks. I was going to skip lunch rather than have roo but they insisted. Anyway, there I was with my plate of rissoles and all the people of the community office around the table staring at me while I took my first bite. One of them immediately grabbed his neck in a fake choke hold and mimed gagging, “Oooh, aaahhh, I’m gunna die.” Of course, we all erupted in laughter. They weren’t half bad, but then, all the grated carrot and whatever else was in the rissoles masked the flavour.
People who eat roo on a regular basis also reek. It gets into the sweat and it is enough to make you gag. No amount of washing or deodorant can mask it. When I fed it to my dogs, they got the smelliest farts so they don’t get it anymore either.
