Man punches a kangaroo in the face to rescue his dog

The look on kangaroo’s face after taking the punch is pricelss!

As the story goes, the battle took place back in June of 2016. The man in the video, Greig Tonkins (who is reportedly a zookeeper), was on a boar-hunting trip with a number of his friends, including Kailem, a 19-year-old guy who passed away last week after a battle with Ewing Sarcoma. The footage was from a longer video clip shot by another friend, Greg Bloom, who was documenting their boar hunting (word is that they were trying to get Kailem a “tonner,” a.k.a. a wild boar weighing in at around ~220 lbs.).

Tonkins’ dog Max got caught in a kangaroo headlock was one of a pack who were helping on the hunt. Apparently this is how kangaroos act in the wild some times? Whatever the case may be, Tonkins says he only “stunned” the kangaroo during their fist fight (hence the ‘roo and his “WTF” face), with his friend Matthew Amor telling news.com.au that “it was funny because the guy who did it is the most placid bloke. We laughed at him for chucking such a shit punch .”
As of now, spokespeople at the zoo are reportedly “working with Mr. Tonkins to understand the exact circumstances of the event and will consider any appropriate action.” Amor says that, if Kailem were alive, he’d love to see the clip going viral. ”Kailem would be looking down from up there [heaven] and laughing because it was the highlight of the trip.”
