A rogue kangaroo chased a man in panic before crashing to the ground, while the two pushed him into a long melee with both fighters looking worse than wear and tear.
Footage posted on Ballina’s, NSW, Instagram page shows the man running away from a fierce eastern gray before tripping and hitting the ground.
Then the ruthless marsupial tramples the man, who is desperately standing on his feet and holding a stick and swinging it wildly in self-defense.

Kangaroos can jump through the first blow, alternating squares, monstrous hooks and backs.
Immersed in the power and accuracy of Australia’s iconic animal boxing style, the man packs a kangaroo to avoid further blows.
But Roe brings the battle to earth and tackles the man with a mixed martial arts-inspired move.
Fortunately for the victim, he ends up above his attacker and is able to subdue the animal briefly.
It is not known if the man was seriously injured during the attack.
Kangaroos are not often aggressive, but thousands of undocumented attacks occur in Australia when the animals feel threatened.

When does a kangaroo attack?
The risk of being attacked by a kangaroo is extremely low. Thousands of people seek medical help every year for pet injuries, while in NSW less than five people are treated for kangaroo-related injuries.
The greatest danger is in areas where people have changed kangaroos’ natural habitat and feeding patterns.
You are more at risk of a seizure when:
• Their numbers, movements and group structure have changed because the natural predators of kangaroos no longer exist, or new habitat has been provided by the creation of dams, shelter and grazing
• The kangaroo lost his instinctive fear of people because people fed him or treated him
• Kangaroos consider the person as a partner in sparring, a threat to themselves, their offspring, or their dominance over the group
• Kangaroo caught or started • Female kangaroo weaning her young • The common kangaroo (a kangaroo accustomed to humans) has aggressive characteristics.
A kangaroo will attack a person as if it were another kangaroo. She can push or wrestle with her front feet, or sit back and kick with her hind legs. Since the resulting injuries can be serious, it is essential to avoid conflict with a kangaroo.

Golf club known for players attacked by kangaroos collapses after members were charged $ 3,600 a year for shaky facilities and an empty bar
By ANTOINETTE MILIENOS for the Daily Mail in Australia
An Australian golf course has become popular after players are suddenly terrorized by a series of kangaroo attacks and are unlikely to pay their debts.
Gold Coast officials at Arundel Hills Country Club announced in a letter sent to members Tuesday that it was closing its doors “immediately” due to the financial turmoil.
The crash comes after a number of golfers at the popular outdoor club were brutally attacked by wild kangaroos, with at least 15 people being attacked and two being taken to hospital.
An email was sent to Arundel Hills Country Club’s staff and members (pictured, the club’s closed front gate on Wednesday, May 25) on Tuesday explaining the club’s closure and its placement in management.

Mary Kohler, 64, was enjoying a tour with a group of friends earlier this month when Roe’s attack left her with serious injuries to her neck, arms and back.
I did not see what struck me. “One of my friends jumped off the wagon with a putter and hit a kangaroo off my back,” said me. Koehler told 9News.
It was very scary. At this point, I did not realize the extent of my injuries.
Concerned members are increasingly being forced to defend themselves with their putters, as aggressive marsupials refuse to move off the greens and openly attack players.

Amateur golfer Wendy Powick posted a video of a group of kangaroos stopping themselves on the golf course waiting for them to leave.
Footage taken last year shows the moment Ms Buick got ready to swing her tea box when a large group of at least 15 kangaroos appeared in the distance and swarmed green.
An email was sent from officials to Arundel Hills Country Club members at 19:01 on Tuesday, a minute after the club closed its doors for the last time.
Employees were told in the email not to return to work after the Gold Coast golf course was placed in external management.
Grant Thornton’s manager, Graham Keeler, said that “the company’s financial situation and the fact that the company is obliged to vacate the property” led to the decision to close the club.
“We will review company records this week to ensure we have all membership agreements in place to verify membership details,” he said. Keeler said.
“We will confirm within the next 10 days the amount that each member is entitled to claim under their agreement.”
Members have been complaining for more than three years about the deteriorating condition of the club as facilities on the site have become unusable (photo, social benches in the club)
Each Arundel Hills member paid about $ 3,600 a year despite the unstructured land and amenities (pictured, outdoor seating at the outdoor club)
Club member Scott Buick said he and his wife’s membership fees were withdrawn from their accounts on the morning of the club’s closure.
Mr Bweck told the Daily Mail Australia: ‘Our membership fee was withdrawn yesterday morning, I even told my wife’ Look at this, they took it two days ago ‘.
Some members’ fees were deducted from their accounts two weeks before the scheduled payment date.
“You can not tell me the driver on site was not aware of the closure.”
Each member of Arundel Hills paid about $ 3,600 annually, most of them seniors or retirees.
The outdoor club, owned by Zhongsheng Management Pty Ltd, was first developed by the Japanese in the 1990s and was once considered the jewel of the well-known coastal golf club circuit.
Bweck said members had no idea the club was locked and did not have access to equipment worth thousands of dollars in lockers on the property.
Members have been complaining for more than three years about the club’s deteriorating condition as on – site facilities and golf carts become unusable.
Mr Powick claimed: “They closed and closed the pool and sauna because they were so dilapidated that we could not use them.”
The club had 38 broken golf carts and the staff had to go to the BWS (bottle shop) to replenish the bar stock because the liquor suppliers are not paid.
Club member Scott Buick said 38 golf carts were destroyed and management closed the sauna (photo) and showers for more than a year due to poor maintenance.
Mr. Bweck said surveyors had been on the property for a month before closing, and one of them told him, “We would not be here if we did not plan to carve it out.”
Officials will launch an investigation into the club’s finances to provide information to members and creditors.
Mr. Keeler asked outside club members and creditors to be patient while the investigation is being conducted.
“Next week we will review the membership agreements and determine the amount that each member is entitled to claim,” he said. Keeler said.
We understand that a number of members are currently storing golf clubs and other personal belongings on the premises.
“We will be reaching out to members this week to provide times to arrange the collection of these personal items.”
A creditors’ meeting is scheduled within eight days. Keeler said club directors and a related party are considering proposing a settlement instrument that, if successful, would provide a better return for creditors.
