Doesn't say but I hope the dog was rescued. Roos are mean and dangerous. They can gut a gfrown man with those back claws.

Here's a Video of a Kangaroo Fighting a Dog

Wow, that's awful! The Roo is trying to drown the dog!

I hope he got away. At least the white pup was smart enough to stay on the bank.

That's nature! Would it be any worse if the Roo was eaten alive by the dog? If dog owners do not control their animals around wildlife anything is possible. The idea is to keep domesticated and wildlife separated.

The dogs were provoking it. The kangaroo was simply defending itself. Also what do you expect the wild kangaroo to do, just stand there and let the dog rip it to shreds?

No, no!! I totally understandl that. It just looks so straightforward the way the Roo is trying to get the dog under.

Quite an intimidating animal.
