Luke Bryan gifted his wife Caroline two kangaroos over the holidays which will be raised at their Brett's Barn, a farm established in memory of Caroline's late niece.
Now anyone who watched the video of Luke giving Caroline her gift probably thought it was adorable, but, in case you missed it, the folks at PETA didn’t feel the same.
PETA Vice President Colleen O’Brien said the following:
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.
The organization is now arguing for an investigation into where Luke got the animals, and adds that they are “ready to help Luke Bryan right this wrong and move these vulnerable marsupials to a reputable sanctuary."
