Kangaroo Gets Punched in The Face After Threatening To Drown Australian Man's Dog

In a thrilling clash straight from the heart of Australia, a courageous Aussie man found himself in a high-stakes showdown with a menacing kangaroo hell-bent on drowning his beloved dog in the depths of a river. Mick Moloney, a resident of Mildura, Victoria, was strolling along his usual path near the Murray River on October 14th when he realized that one of his faithful companions was missing. Little did he know that this routine walk would soon turn into a heart-pounding battle for survival.

As Moloney frantically scanned the riverbank for his loyal companion, Hatchi, he was suddenly confronted with a horrifying sight. Emerging from the murky waters, Hatchi appeared to be gasping for air, desperately struggling against the iron grip of a towering kangaroo.

This muscular beast, standing tall in the hip-height water, had Hatchi firmly trapped around the neck, threatening to drag the poor dog to a watery grave.

Without a moment's hesitation, Moloney sprang into action, fearlessly wading into the river, his voice booming with determination as he bellowed at the kangaroo to release his precious companion. "I'm gonna knock you out, mate!" Moloney's words echoed through the air, a fierce warning to the kangaroo.

With a swift swing of his fist, Moloney aimed to strike the kangaroo, though the video footage leaves us in suspense as to whether his punch landed true. Nevertheless, the kangaroo reacted instinctively, lunging at Moloney with a ferocity that sent both man and phone hurtling into the water.

But this courageous act had its desired effect. The kangaroo's sudden movement caused it to relinquish its grip on Hatchi, who valiantly swam to safety on the shore. As Moloney resurfaced, his trusty phone still recording, the camera captured the unwavering expression and flexed muscles of the kangaroo.

Amidst fits of laughter and disbelief, Moloney rejoined his loyal companion, Hatchi, on the safety of the shore.

Reflecting on the intense encounter, Moloney shared, "I got a few scratches. My forearm was throbbing for the rest of the day. It was quite a punch!"

While kangaroos are known to be herbivores, not preying on other animals for meat, there is a fascinating possibility. According to University of Melbourne kangaroo ecologist, Graeme Coulson, when these creatures stand in the water, they may be attempting to lure their own predators, cunningly seeking to drown them.
