A lady has discovered what happens when you approach nature too closely. Afemale tourist gets 'attacked' by kangaroowhen she was trying to pat it. Shakila was out for a walk in New South Wales Kangaroo Valley, where the scenery was beautiful and perfect.
The place's name certainly gives off the impression that roos will be milling about in large numbers. The visitor was given the option to pet one of the animals, despite the fact that you should never do that.
Kangaroos are not exactly peaceful or meek animals. They'll undoubtedly rise in your grill if they feel threatened, and it appears that's exactly what has happened as a female tourist gets 'attacked' by kangaroo when she was trying to pat it.
Shakila is captured on camera gently approaching the kangaroo in the wide plain. The animal initially appears a little wary of the person, but soon jumps in her direction.
The kangaroo also did a side-step that any rugby player would envy. As a result of the roo's unexpected movements, Shakila flees and falls to the ground. You can watch the video here.
"Shakila wanted to go up and pat the kangaroo, not realising they can be dangerous, and as she got close, the kangaroo got up and attacked her. She tripped over just missing the kangaroos claws,"a person who was filming the whole scene said.
Fortunately, there was no physical contact between the woman and the kangaroo, and soon after, the animal bounced away. On social media, some claimed that this is a textbook example of what not to do while in the wild.
"What did she except to happen?"one person asked. A different person commented, "That kangaroo was bobbing and weaving, like he was gonna knock her out." "Nothing to laugh about, she was seconds away from being gutted like a fish,"said a third.
Especially if you see them relaxing in a pond, you shouldn't mess with them. Even though it could seem like they're simply going for a cheeky little swim, joining them in the water could be your last act.
It can be a fairly strange sight to watch, according to Graeme Coulson, a kangaroo ecologist from the University of Melbourne:
There's a very strong instinct - kangaroos will go to water if they're threatened by a predator. In the case of a big male, they can definitely drown dogs. If the dog swims out to them, they've got strong arms and big claws and they can drown [the dog].- Graeme Coulson, kangaroo ecologist from the University of Melbourne
However, the majority of the time, this is done in an effort to avoid anything.

Conclusion

A female tourist gets 'attacked' by kangaroo when she was trying to pat it while she was on vacation in Australia.
Shakila noticed a bunch of roos lounging in the grass when she was staying at Kangaroo Valley, around 160 kilometers southwest of Sydney. The video captures the moment she approaches one kangaroo, who seems scared at first but then hits her.
