A hunter who messed with with a kangaroo now wishes he hadn’t, after having his jaw broken when the animal headbutted him.
Joshua Hayden was lining up shots at a group of kangaroos when he was knocked unconscious. A dramatic picture of Hayden, 19, after it happened shows him sporting a painful-looking black eye.
It happened near Kellerberrin in Western Australia last week.
Hayden told ABC:-
It actually collided with the side of the car and smashed the front window.
“Then it bounced back onto me and headbutted me straight in the jaw.”
He had stuck his body out of the window to line up a shot after seeing three kangaroos.
The teenager was rushed to hospital by his brother, and was told that he needs an operation once the swelling in his face has gone down.
Hayden said: “The kangaroos are going crazy these days.
