We often think of kangaroos as friendly and cuddly creatures from the Australian outback. However, a fully grown kangaroo can weigh up to 200 pounds and can easily disembowel people and animals with their powerful legs when they feel threatened.
So when one Australian man saw a wild kangaroo attacking his dog, he knew he had to act quickly to save his beloved pet since his dog didn’t stand a chance against a threatened kangaroo and its deadly kick.
Without thinking, the brave man sprinted toward the kangaroo, who had his dog in a headlock, and it luckily released its grip on the dog when it saw a larger opponent running over. However, with its arms free, the massive animal was ready to fight.
Before the kangaroo could attack, the man managed to get a solid punch to the animal’s face, which thankfully scared it away before anyone got seriously hurt.
