This video from the Australian outback is making the rounds online.
In it, a man punches a kangaroo in the face that was attacking his dog. Accordingly to Matthew Amor–who filmed the bizarre encounter–the group was on a boar hunting trip organized for a boy dying of cancer. When one of their dogs got tangled up with a kangaroo, zookeeper Greig Tonkins sprung into action to prevent the situation from escalating.
As you’ll see, the dog was basically in a headlock when Tonkins briefly took on the marsupial.
More than an hour of footage was recorded to make a DVD for the boy (who passed away a couple days ago) and his family of the trip, which explains why the fight was caught on video. It has received millions of views since it was posted online, and mixed reactions in support of and against the man fighting the kangaroo.
