The moment the man stood toe-to-toe and traded punches with the marsupial to save his dog ‘Max’ was captured on camera by a friend, who videoed the fight from the safety of his vehicle.
The video was taken on what appeared to be a hunting trip in rural bushland. As the white truck carrying the group speeds down a dirt road, the man can be heard yelling out for his dog ‘Max’ to ‘come here’. When the dog fails to run to the truck, the owner becomes visibly worried.
Suddenly, the truck comes to a stop, with the man jumping down from the back tray and running quickly towards where his animal appears to have trapped a kangaroo.
The narrator of the video, which appears to have been shown on a television program, describes the scene by saying ‘all is not as it seems’.
