Ace Showbiz claims Luke Bryan is under fire for buying his wife two baby kangaroos for Christmas. He Instagrammed a picture of the roos along with the caption: "2 Live Roo and Roo Tang Clan are living their best life. Seriously...real names are Margo and Todd. They are adjusting perfectly are beyond sweet and precious. #brettsbarn #christmasvacation #margoandtodd"
Fans react ...
"Kangaroos are NOT pets"
"Just wait until they get older and start causing problems with your other animals and your kids. What are you going to do when one of them injures one of your kids? Kangaroos aren't like cats and dogs. You can't take care of them like they're donkeys. Get a clue."
"hey redneck. Just because the states have no regard for animal welfare and it's legal, doesn't mean it's right or ethical. This had made news in Australia, and for good reason."
** UPDATE **
One Country claims PETA wants to investigate Luke and Caroline Bryan's kangaroos. They released a statement saying; "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," a statement on PETA's website reads. "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."
Now the Truth....
They're actually the newest additions to "Brett's Barn," the family's barn and foundation honoring their late niece, Sadie Brett Boyer, who passed away after battling congenital heart disease earlier this year. The Bryan-Boyer clan is now using the organization to rescue animals as well as raise funds and awareness for Brett's condition.
The project came about when Caroline promised her sick infant niece (the daughter of her brother Bo and his wife Ellen) a beautiful white pony one month after she was born in 2016. After Brett passed away, Caroline wanted to fulfill that promise and find a way to remember her niece while helping others, so she decided to turn one of the barns on her and Luke's Tennessee property into a special place.
The barn, which now houses all sorts of rescue animals, is also a foundation that raises awareness for congenital heart disease and Down Syndrome. Luke said they working with some local charities to bring kids out to see the animals
