When A Marsupial Has Had It With You

“If the kangaroo approaches, turn your body sideways, exposing a narrow profile to the animal and protecting your face and organs. Raise your hands and lean your head away from the animal to minimize the chances of being scratched across the face by the kangaroo’s nasty claws.” [Palmer/Slate]

If a kangaroo attacks you, you”d better not turn your back on it. If it starts “pulling up clumps of grass” or “rubbing its chest on the ground,” grunt at it, but do so “submissively.” (And please send us video of this interaction. Thanks.)
