MELBOURNE: A hilarious video has emerged showing a boy being punched in the face by a kangaroo at a wildlife park in Melbourne after he tries to feed it.
The clip, filmed by the lad’s mum, was recorded in the Glen Waverley area of Melbourne in Australia.
It shows the hesitant boy approaching the country’s iconic animal under the supervision of his dad.
The man encourages him: “Walk straight at it, just walk straight at it.”
As he gets closer an emu comes from behind the kangaroo and walks between the animal and the boy.
As it does so it appears to headbutt or graze the kangaroo which then fires a stiff left jab that lands on the oncoming child’s face.
A small scream from someone watching the incident can be heard on the recording before a brief family inquiry into what happened.
