​Hunter's Jaw Is Broken After Being Headbutted By Kangaroo

A man was knocked out cold and left with a shattered jaw after being headbutted by a kangaroo while out hunting in Western Australia.

Jackson Vincent from Freemantle, Perth, had been visiting his grandmother in Margaret River and saw the stacked AF animal on her property at about 11.30am.

Jacko said: "I have been going to that creek since I was a little boy and there have always been kangaroos on the property.

"I was walking my dog and we saw this huge roo standing in the water. I have never seen a kangaroo standing in the water like that, we could just see his head at first, and he was one of the biggest I have ever seen.

"As I ran around him to take a picture he came closer and that was when I realised he was coming right at me and he was really big.

"I am pretty confident around animals but the moment when he started to come out of the water my heart definitely jumped and I decided to take a few steps back.

"He looked to be at least two metres (6ft 5in) tall, or taller, and must have weighed at least 100 kg (16st)."

In short, don't mess with kangaroos.
