Dish Network Puts an End to Live Kangaroo Promotions

February 2012

In an attempt to promote its new 2012 “Hopper” DVR, Dish Network included live kangaroos and wallabies in many of its promotional events.

Not wanting to be associated with such cruelty, the satellite broadcaster stated that its future plans call only for stuffed and inflatable kangaroos and people in kangaroo costumes.
