    Woman attacked by kangaroo!

    SYDNEY, Australia - An elderly woman was attacked by a large kangaroo on a farm in Australia and was lucky to be alive after a pet dog leapt to her aid, her son said Saturday.

    The 6-foot-5-inch kangaroo lunged without warning at 65-year-old Rosemary Neal as she went to check on some horses in a paddock on the property near Mudgee, 160 miles northwest of Sydney on Friday, son Darren Neal said.

    The kangaroo "just jumped up and launched straight at her," Darren Neal said. "He hit her once and she just dropped and rolled. My dog heard her screaming and bolted down and chased him off.

    "It wasn't for the dog she'd probably be dead."

    Oh thank Goodness for her dog. 6'5ft kangeroo is huge!! Most Kangeroos I have ever encountered luckily have jumped away happily, but I have heard of these aggressive ones......

    Kangaroos will chase a dog into a dam or creek then prevent them from getting out....doggy tires then drowns....
    I will soon be an expert on Kangas as my new property has millions of them...

    Its their hind legs that do the damage, they balance on their tail and whack you with their hind legs, it sure packs a mean blow.
