Paraglider Lands Perfectly In Australia, Only To Be Immediately Attacked By A Kangaroo
Some stories that make their way to the internet are undeniably Australian - this is one of them.
A man who was enjoying a nice paragliding trip Down Under was pissed when, upon landing, he got punched by a kangaroo.
Jonathan Bishop was coming in to land at Orroral Valley in Namadgi National Park when a couple of the animals came over to say hello - little did he know they were not feeling all that friendly.
After the 35-year-old says hello to 'Skip', one of the hopping mad locals bounds over to take a swing at him, before attempting to push him to the ground.
The paraglider tells the kangaroo to 'fuck off' while trying to fend off his furry fists. Luckily the dude had his GoPro on so he caught the altercation on camera.
It makes for a pretty funny watch, particularly as the guy's friendly welcome turns to swearing when he realises the kangas weren't there for cuddles.
Although he escaped from the attack unscathed, his ego was certainly bruised. He'd just finished a two-hour trip and if it weren't for the aggy marsupials that would've been the perfect landing. Better luck next time, chuck.
But his troubles didn't end there, ITV News reported that due to a lack of phone reception at the park, poor old Jon had to pack up his paraglider and walk several miles before he was able to contact a friend to come get him. Looks like it just wasn't his day.
On the plus side, at least the animals didn't stick around to cause any real damage. But perhaps, just to be on the safe side he should hit up the incredible man who got into a fist fight with a kangaroo after it attacked his dog.
The 'roo, clearly shocked by the hit, simply stares at the man and his dog before hopping away into the distance to eat a giant slice of humble pie.
Perhaps if the ones who attacked our buddy Jon caught a glimpse of this guy, they wouldn't have been feeling so brave.
