Australia is home to the most dan’gerous land and sea creatures in the world. Arachnids such as the Sydney funnel-web spider have te’rrorized some of the most popularized regions in the continent, while Tiger Sharks lurking in the waters along the eastern coast have become known for their fe’rocious att’acks on human beings. And then there’s the loveable Bo’xing Kangaroo. While the country’s national symbol is not considered among the most dan’gerous, their epic slugfest with one another and human beings, from time to time, have become the stuff of legend, especially when the incidents are captured on camera. Such was the case in a recent exchange between a Bo’xing Kangaroo and a former MMA trainer named Cliff Des.
Sur’veillance footage captured a six-minute brawl between the Australian man and a Kangaroo after the wild animal encro’ached upon his property in central Victoria and thre’atened the safety of his dogs. Highlights of the fi’ght include, the Kangaroo chasing Des down from behind and sto’mping him out before Des managed to get back to his feet, grab a stick from off of the ground and take a swipe at the animal. The Kangaroo then charged at Des and landed a punch before the former MMA trainer responded with a blow of his own. From there, the str’uggle continued until Des managed to take the animal down and restrain it. In the end, Des suffered several la’cerations and bit’es, from his head down to his legs. While the Kangaroo eventually es’caped back into the wild. The fi’ght made local headlines as Des was interviewed about the matchup by 9 News Australia, shortly thereafter.
