What are your personal feelings on the kangaroo video? Only if you feel comfortable sharing :)
I think it’s really overblown and only important because it went viral. honestly. Kangaroos are dangerous and I give the dude props for being willing to step in for his dog, and while it’s a little overly macho I wouldn’t be surprised if he’d gotten swung at by the roo if he’d tried to disengage without at least making the animal wary of him. (Edit: yes, he’s a zookeeper in Australia, but he doesn’t work with kangaroos currently and I don’t know if he has a history of doing so, so I don’t think that’s super pertinent either way). I don’t support hitting animals but it’s a single dude doing something stupid, once, to an animal that is pretty much built to take that kind of hit, and there’s way more important things to talk about.
