You've probably seen a lot in your lifetime, but this most likely is a first.
Boxing match with a kangaroo? Why not?
What seemed as a simple hunting trip, took a turn for the worse very quickly for these guys in Australia. A wild kangaroo had a hold of this group of hunters dog by the neck and was not letting go anytime time soon.
As the truck pulls up, they realize that the tides had been reversed, instead of the dog on a 'roo, the 'roo had the dog in a headlock. The hunter jumps from the truck to rescue his dog, and what happens next is simply astonishing.
Watch the video from ViralHog below:
As the man approaches, the kangaroo holds on and attempts to cut the dog one last time with its claw using a powerful leg kick. The kangaroo eventually lets go and begins to size up its next opponent.
In self-defense the man stands tall as if he is in a boxing ring against a prized opponent. With a few feet shuffles, the man reaches out and socks the kangaroo a good one right in the face. The punch connects and sends the Australian kangaroo backwards.
It is hard to fathom that this video isn't edited or pulled from a movie.
Now that this viral video had made its rounds, what are the chances a zookeeper would think to square up with a kangaroo in a dire situation?
