A woman in Melbourne, Australia was viciously attacked by a kangaroo while jogging.

Debbie Urquhart was jogging near her home when a male kangaroo came at her, hit her, and knocked her down. When she was on the ground, the kangaroo was jumping on her as she screamed. 

I was screaming, my natural reaction was to scream.”

— Debbie Urquhart

I was screaming, my natural reaction was to scream. Once she stopped screaming and played dead, the kangaroo moved on. Fortunately, Debbie escaped and was able to make it home on foot. Her husband said that once she returned home, she was standing there covered and blood from head to toe. Her clothing was torn and shredded to pieces. Debbie was stitched up in the hospital and after being released she said that the attack could’ve been worse.
