Aussie Woman Draws Piss-Funny Version Of Kangaroo For Insurance Claim

There's a section in most insurance claim forms where a motorist has to draw what caused the accident and what other objects were surrounding the vehicle.

If you're not exactly Leonardo da Vinci, this section can be a bit tedious because drawing a car isn't like drawing a stick figure.

Unfortunately for West Australian Fiona Cosgrove, she had a run in with a very prominent species of while she was driving back to her farm in Arrowsmith East.

Naturally, she had to submit a claim to her insurance company and she was required to show how she hit the kangaroo.

To be fair, kangaroos are bloody hard to draw, and Fiona did her best. Not only did the farmer outline the roo, but also took the time to etch a Batmobile style car and the surrounding bush.

One person commented on the photo on Facebook, saying: "The rarely witnessed great Australian Tyrannoroo!"

Mrs Cosgrove has told "I was sort of winging it and I originally wasn't going to put the kangaroo on there because I am not the best drawer. I drew it in led pencil first and then traced over it in pen and then looked at it and went, 'Oh, that's bad'.

"My seven-year-old actually said to me, 'Look, mum, I can show you how to draw a kangaroo if you like?'. I have been asked this morning if I have a sequel picture coming out. I am aiming for an Archibald and maybe an art school scholarship.

"I have never had any damage, I have always done pretty well. The rest of my family are very prone to hitting kangaroos. It's pretty common out here."


It appears Fiona's previously clean record has been tarnished again after she accidentally hit another roo just two weeks ago in her father-in-law's car.

She's been copping a lot of flak online from people about her driving skills ever since, as she told LADbible: "I have particularly enjoyed reading the city folks' opinions on the matter. I, of course, am a murderer and all country drivers should drive a 40km/h at night so as not to hit wildlife."

But, at the same time, she says most of the comments have just been banter.

We probably shouldn't laugh at the idea of hitting a kangaroo. Not because it's an integral part of Australia, but because they're a fucking force to be reckoned with. Some can tower more than six feet and weigh up to 90 kilograms. Hitting one of those at 100 km/h would do some serious damage.
