Luke Bryan is under fire after buying his wife two baby kangaroos for Christmas. The singer filmed a short video of himself presenting his wife Caroline with the kangaroos on Christmas Day, to add to the farm she established in memory of her baby niece, Sadie Brett, following her death in February. But now the country superstar is being slammed by officials at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) for his choice of gift. “Baby kangaroos belong in their mothers’ pouches, not in gift bags,” reads a statement from the organization’s vice president, Colleen O’Brien. “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.” Bryan has yet to respond to the backlash.
