user posted image rAn elderly woman was attacked by a large kangaroo on a farm in Australia and was lucky to be alive after a pet dog leapt to her aid, her son said Saturday. The 6-foot-5-inch kangaroo lunged without warning at 65-year-old Rosemary Neal as she went to check on some horses in a paddock on the property near Mudgee, 160 miles northwest of Sydney on Friday, son Darren Neal said.

The kangaroo "just jumped up and launched straight at her," Darren Neal said.

We in America always think of kangaroos as sweet and cuddly, but I've heard they can be VERY aggressive at times. Lucky woman.................

The males can be aggressive and territorial in the wild and the largest ones, esp red kangaroos which are extremely powerful animals, if you get in it's path you are in trouble. They really only fight each other and there have been cases where humans have been attacked but it's really rare . There are a few Eastern Greys in zoos and things over here and they're pretty docile creatures, very friendly really.
