Gun Culture - Australia - 03 Apr 2013
Photographer David Gray spent a night out with Steve O'Donnell, a professional plumber who by night is a government-licensed kangaroo shooter on the outskirts of Australia's capital Canberra. After dusk, Steve's job is to take part in the culling of Australia's kangaroo population, which is estimated at over 50 million though precise numbers vary dramatically. Every licensed kangaroo shooter goes through rigorous testing and must abide by strict rules and conditions, including that a "headshot" must be obtained to minimize the animal's suffering.
