jeeze louise, I just found this...
Kangaroos turn deadly
Killer kangaroos have claimed the lives of two dogs and injured at least one person in Canberra in the past week, as a desperate search for food
forces the normally shy marsupials into maddening daylight.
Roo's can be nasty buggers, usually the 'alpha male', but this proves how desperate they
are for water. They're not stupid either. I know of a few cases of farm dogs being drowned
by a 'roo. When threatened, they 'hop' to the nearest source of water like a creek or dam
and the dog follows...and the rest is history. A 'roo' tail can easily support its body weight
and their 'claws' are razor sharp. They will kill for self defence, but they don't eat meat.
