This reminds me of a story I was told by an old lady who grew up on a sheep station. Over the years she saw, more than once, their dogs get strangled by buck roos. Usually they caught a bullet in the head before killing the dogs but on one occasion they were too late and the roo finished the job.Bloke wrote: ↑Fri Nov 29, 2019 12:27 amAh, hahaha! Yes, that actually made the six o’clock news a couple of years ago now.
Big buck Roos (Boomers) are best left alone, Jim. They’re not scared of too much and as you can see they stand their ground. If chased by dogs, they’ll lead them to water and drown them if they can.
On the other end of the scale, when my Son was very young we were visiting a zoo that allowed you to feed and pat the roos. There was one big old fella propped in the corner keeping an eye on things and of course, my young bloke wanted to pat him. Under my watchful eye, pat him he did, right before grabbing the poor old bastard right on the nuts The look on that roos face. To his credit he took it like a champ and accepted a handful of fodder for his trouble.
