Why do you have a potentially dangerous wild animal as a pet???..

Silly acts lead to silly and avoidable deaths..

Poor kangaroo, was an innocent victim..

First the sharks and now the 'roos.

Mother Nature is fighting back against our rape of the planet!

This is what firearms are made for, but now you can’t own one in AuzzieLand.

if it is a pet, it is no longer “wild”.

77, old, lonely, and picked the wrong 'friend'. Old people do this all the time and suffer similar injuries but usually from fellow Humans... Requiescat in pace, Sir. This is the early beginning of the Western Gray roo mating season so maybe being 'incarcerated' wasn't working for the roo... sad story

Unsure about the fatality rate for kangaroo/human attacks....but attacks are fairly common.

We in Australia start our killer animals at the "irakunji " size "jelly fish the size of a coin ", move onto spider size

{funnel web }, then snakes {eastern brown, death adder etc } ,angry wombats, cassowaries in North Queensland , white sharks and bull sharks , crocodiles , and yes, now skippy.

Any wonder most Aussies live in big cities.

And firearms are NOT banned in Australia.

There is a process to go through to get a licence and buy a firearm , no more difficult than getting a driving licence.

The difference is in Australia most of the things that kill you {snakes, sharks, etc } are protected species and cant be SHOT anyway.

Farmers and sporting shooters have little problem getting firearms.

The rest of the male population likes to fight, not shoot, when sorting out difficulties.

Your statement is totally wrong. You can get a license for a firearm in Australia and most of these ARE used for the purpose of killing wildlife, unlike some other countries.

As 1st world urban nations America and Australia have some pretty nasty wild animals that can kill you so easily, kind of amazing how these nations were able to grow and advance, you really have to use common sense when dealing and being around these wild animals regardless of how beautiful or how you personally feel or think of your connection to them, they’re always unpredictable and we all have to share the land. Sad story, sad way to go.
