Luke gave his wife Caroline two baby kangaroos wrapped up in a gift bag on Christmas morning. But the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is not on board with the present.
The group issued the following statement: "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. 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."
The kangaroos are meant to be part of a small collection of farm animals as part of Brett's Barn, which Caroline established to help bring cheer to sick kids.
