In wild STRAYA scenes, a paraglider has captured the moment he was attacked by a pair of kangaroos right after safely landing back on the ground.
Jonathan Bishop had been paragliding cross country for two hours near Canberra when he spied a clear area to land.
“I decided to land on the concrete slab of the old Orroral Space Tracking Station. I was concentrating on the landing and didn’t notice the kangaroo until after I landed,” he explained.
“As it ran towards me I thought it was being friendly so I said ‘What’s Up, Skip?’ It then attacked me twice before hopping away,” he continued. “I packed up my paraglider and had to walk several kilometres to get phone reception and call a friend to come and collect me.”
Note to self: do not call a wild kangaroo Skip.
Catch the video below to see the “fucking kangaroos”.
(Look at those goddamn claws.)
Mates, I’ve watched this more than 10 times and I’m still laughing.
As the video quickly made the rounds on social media, one Twitter user had a simply brilliant response to the ‘roo attack.
Ah, Straya. Beautiful Straya.Source: SBS
