Kangaroo Invasion

Wow, what a weekend ... Yet another example of the AU's epicenter originating in Australia ...

A home was invaded by a Kangaroo on Sunday morning.
From the article:

"Ettlin, a chef originally from the Swiss city of Stans, wrestled the thrashing and bleeding 90 pound marsupial out the front door. "I had just my Bonds undies on. I felt vulnerable," he said, referring to a popular Australian underwear brand. The kangaroo, which Ettlin said was around his height, 5 foot 9 inches, left a trail of blood through the house and claw gouges in the wooden frame of his bed. Ettlin, who was left wearing just his shredded underpants and with scratch marks on his leg and buttocks, described himself as "lucky." The kangaroo vanished into a nearby forest from where it likely came. The family reported the intrusion to police and to wildlife authorities."

I figure, if you're looking for trouble, you're gonna find it, and insulting this Kangaroo's mother, and/or its face, is a great way to find trouble. Here's a couple of gems from the article:

"My initial thought when I was half awake was: it's a lunatic ninja coming through the window," the 42-year-old told The Associated Press on Monday. "It seems about as likely as a kangaroo breaking in."

But here's the stranger thing ... what this Kangaroo had to do to get in the house:

"The animal hopped a fence to reach the family's backyard. The family suspects it felt trapped and tried to escape the yard through the bedroom window which is about 5 feet above the ground. "

And Given what Kangaroo's are capable of:

"Kangaroos rarely harm humans, but when they do, it is usually because they feel cornered. They have been known to disembowel people with the claws of their powerful hind legs."

Thus, the Kangaroo, who rarely harms humans, decide to target this family, bounding over several obstacles in the way, namely a fence, and a five foot high closed window. These people must have really done something to piss off the kangaroo ... really, what else could it be ...

Although it had been a dangerous and harrowing experience, Ettlin's wife could see a funny side to the family's unusual predicament."

Thats right Mrs. Ettlin ... of course its funny ... either its funny, or the Animals really will have their reckoning, and that couldn't possibly be the case Mrs. Ettlin ... could it?
