An incredible video from Australia captures the moment when a man was forced to fight a kangaroo in order to save a dog's life.
In the jaw-dropping footage, the man can be seen running across a field towards the rambunctious roo as it holds the canine in a headlock.
When he reaches the wrestling creatures, the kangaroo lets the dog go and turns its attention toward the man.
The two unlikely adversaries then square off and the man actually punches the kangaroo in the face!
However, the blow does not even faze the animal and, in a scene reminiscent of a horror film, the kangaroo briefly reels back before quickly regaining its composure and staring down the man as if to ask "that's all you've got?"
After seeing the animal's surprising response, the man wisely opts to retreat rather than engage in further fisticuffs with the creature.
Based on the brief scuffle, that was probably a smart decision because it looked like the man would not have fared much better battling the kangaroo than the dog he had just saved.
