Paraglider Lands, Gets Socked In The Face By A Kangaroo – And It’s All Captured On Cam

It is hilarious but at the same time bit frightening. A new video shows how the kangaroo punches the paraglider.


The paraglider, Jonathan Bishop had been paragliding around the southeastern part of the country for about two hours when he started descending at the Orroral Valley tracking station which is a NASA station that helps Earth-orbiting satellites 50 kilometers (31 miles) south of Canberra.

It is a helmet in order to record his landing. As per the bishop, he says that the landing pad was the last cleared valley where he could safely land.

“I was concentrating on the landing and didn’t notice the kangaroo until after I landed,” he wrote in a description accompanying the YouTube video.

It seems like aggressive Kangaroo bee-lines straight for the paraglider with his fury eyes. The marsupial then squares up with a stature that would make Mike Tyson proud and jab, jab, power hooks Bishop

“As it ran towards me I thought it was being friendly so I said ‘What’s up, Skip? It then attacked me twice before hopping away,” he said, after this incident he had to pack up his paraglider and had to walk some kilometers to get phone reception and then he reached a friend via a phone call. He asked him to pick him soon.

However, the video has gone viral among so many people. It has been viewed more than 1 million times.

According to iflscience, A large male kangaroo can reach heights as tall as 2 meters (6.5 feet) and weigh up to 90 kilograms (200 pounds).

Human activity often changes or destroys the habitats that plants and animals need to survive. Because human populations are growing so fast animals and plants are disappearing 1000 times faster than they have in the past 65 million years. Scientists estimate that in the 21st century 100 species will become extinct every day.
