In South West Rocks, Australia, a man was punched in the face after approaching an angry kangaroo on Christmas Day.
According to Channel10News, a 15-second video captured by Mitchell Robinson’s family, showed the male kangaroo digging in the dirt in the family’s front yard apparently not paying attention to the humans and scavenging for food. Robinson picked something up from the ground to shoo the marsupial away, however that seemed to have had the opposite effect.
The kangaroo stared at the man for a moment, hopped towards him and then unleashed an attack. The video showed the kangaroo hit the man with his front paw and then kicked the man to the ground. Unfortunately, the man already had a broken arm, but luckily did not suffer any further injuries.
The kangaroo then hopped away.
Since the destructive brushfires, more kangaroos have been coming into residential neighborhoods looking for food. Environmental specialists suggest people leave the animals alone since they can inflict dangerous injuries to humans because of their strength, their dangerous front claws and their strong back legs.
There have been hundreds of social media comments; most readers agreeing the man should have just left the kangaroo alone until it moved away on its own.
