During a last wish boar hunting trip for a boy with terminal cancer, the group discovered that a big buck kangaroo had Greig Tonkins’ beloved dog in a deadly headlock. The 6’7″ Taronga Western Plains Zoo employee made his way towards the animals, causing the giant marsupial to become distracted and let go off the dog. For a few moments neither man nor beast showed any sign of backing down. In an effort to break the standoff, Tonkins punched the kangaroo across the snout and took off the other way. The roo was stunned by the blow and hopped away confused, but unharmed.
…the owner was horrified that his dog or the kangaroo would get hurt and run in to save both parties. …The big buck kangaroo releases the dog when the owner gets close but then moves in to try and attack the human …A kangaroo kick to the guts could easily disembowel the owner easily , so he backs off a couple of times giving the kangaroo some space but he eventually changes the roo’s mind with a punch to the snout, as it kept coming forward. The punch stops the roo and makes him think about the situation, giving the owner and the dog time to disengage from the big wild animal and leaving it to hop off and I suppose wonder about what just happened.
