Vegetarian, vegan and pescatorian may all sound familiar, but how about pestatarian?

 

New research shows the rise of pestatarian, who eats feral meat for ethical and environmental reasons.

 

 

 

Dr Catie Gressier, a cultural anthropologist at the University of Melbourne who has studied people’s attitudes towards eating game meat, says hunting can be an ethical and sustainable alternative to traditional farming.

 

Reporter Yuzuha Oka also spoke to Matt Godson from Sporting Shooters’ Association of Australia about kangaroo as sustainable meat source.
