A ROGUE kangaroo put a Victoria man in hospital after he tried to stop it from drowning his dog in a farm dam.
Chris Rickard, 49, of Arthurs Creek, sustained deep cuts to his abdomen and face after being attacked by the kangaroo as he tried to free his dog, which was being held underwater by the animal.
That would be a dam kangaroo, a particularly difficult subspecies. Spraying is not generally effective. Possibly using the correct bait in traps would work, however.
