A 65-year old Australian woman was hospitalized after being savagely attacked by a killer kangaroo. Fortunately, the family dog intervened and drove the marauding marsupial off.
But then, a large male kangaroo inches taller than the 5’6 foot Mrs Neal, suddenly lunged at her.
“The kangaroo has just jumped up and launched straight at her,” he told local newspapers. “He hit her once and she just dropped and rolled. My dog heard her screaming and bolted down and chased him off.
“If it wasn’t for the dog she’d probably be dead.”
Mrs Neal was discharged from hospital, but her son said she was in “a bad way”.
“Her face has been ripped apart, her hand has been mauled, and she’s got scratches all over her back and concussion,” he said. “Her whole body is sore where she has dropped to the ground.”
Up until now, kangaroos have pretty much been concentrating on trying to kill Irish actors. It is a pretty sordid turn of events when they start mugging pensioners. If you read the article, you'll be informed that the family's home has a serious 'roo infestation. They basically can't take a step in any direction without tripping over a kangaroo.
