Woman Nearly 'Disembowelled' After Freak Kangaroo Attack

Woman Nearly 'Disembowelled' After Freak Kangaroo Attack

A Victorian woman has had a horrifying run in with a kangaroo in Wodonga.

Known only as Dina, the woman was enjoying a nice stroll on a dog walking path at Federation Hill on the weekend.

Suddenly, her dog took off after a kangaroo and Dina tried to chase after it. It was here that she was confronted with a 'a big male kangaroo', according to 9News, who launched a sickening attack on her.

"I ran up the embankment to try and get my dog away but not realising that I was only three or four metres behind the roo," she told Channel 9.

"And that's when I sensed the roo was panicking and thinking 'I'm being attacked on all sides'.

"He looked at me and I knew what was going to happen. Something made me turn around. He attacked me from behind and he knocked me to the ground.

"He gouged out the back of my leg, I know now if I hadn't turned around, I would probably have been disembowelled."

Despite being in a state of panic, Dina came up with a genius way to make the attack stop.

"He started pounding on me and jumping on me and I played dead. I just thought this is happening, just wait until it is over," she said.

Kangaroos are known to get territorial, especially when they feel they are under threat.

If you've seen a roo up close and personal then you'll know how big their claws are and how much it would hurt if it was going full pelt.

Dina was transported to hospital where she's received treatment for leg and facial injuries. On her face alone she required 25 stitches.

But she has no love lost for kangaroos.

"Absolutely not, if anything, we're encroaching on their ecology. I could sense his panic I really felt for him the poor thing," she told 9News.

Councillor Danny Lowe added that people in the area should be aware that this sort of behaviour can happen, especially over summer bringing dry and hot conditions.

"Lack of feed and lack of water is bringing them in closer to residential areas. They are wild animals, they will defend themselves and they are territorial," Councillor Danny Lowe said.

So just be careful the next time you're in roo territory.
