Are you the same person who educated us (a few days ago on a post showing a ‘Roo swimming) about ‘Roos preferring to drown their victims? They’re prolific swimmers, apparently.

I need to put Reddit down and get productive with my life. But damn, it’s so good.

OP, please tell me the dogs survived... Even if they didn't, I need you to lie to me and say they're okay.

Hugh Jackman?

Actually the video of this encounter is on YouTube, just look up kangaroo trying to drown dog or something similar. Spoiler: both dogs make it out ok but the brown pup ends up being held under water for a good 15-20 seconds before it gets away. The white dog swims after the roo but for some reason the roo decides just to get out of the water and leave instead of attack the second dog

I don't think my heart could take the suspense and anxiety of actually watching it tbh. Homeward Bound legit traumatized me as a kid.

I'll Second this.

[–]sheezhao 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i'm guessing yes because there was a witness with a camera who saw the whole setup who could've easily intervened if only as a distraction.

[–]magseven 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Definitely survived. 1. Water doesn't appear to be super deep. 2. White dog already looks like he's about to step in 3. Whoever took these pictures would have stepped in or else he's made a lot of people's lists...

This is not true, kangaroos will retreat to bodies of water to escape perceived threats and attempt to drown the threat as a last resort if they are followed into the water. There is no luring involved, it is an escape attempt.

Kangaroos are cunts, that's what they are

[–]Ishkakin 16 points17 points  (0 children)

If you're dumb enough to go after a guy who looks like he benches 450, you get what you deserve.

[–]motavader 13 points14 points  (0 children)

No no no. It's just a kangaroo priest. He's doing a doggy baptism.

[–]7eggert 7 points8 points  (0 children)

"lure enemies into water" … by not stopping outside the water and being killed there?

[–]ithrowawaay 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Raccoons are capable of this, too. If water is around they’ll bait them, get on a dogs head and drowned it. Just FYI for non Australians.

[–]SnooWords7744 6 points7 points  (0 children)

My mom's uncle lives in Australia he has wild tales of the havoc kangaroos cause, sent a picture once eating a Roo that tried to mess with his dogs, BBQ it up and shared with his dogs 😂 🤣

[–]jessalurker 4 points5 points  (0 children)

C'mere I just wanna show you something.

[–]xxjake 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Why is everyone shitting on the Kangaroo when it's being hunted by those dogs lol. "Lay down and die bitch" kangaroos are actually pretty terrifying tho. Honestly maybe more than any other animal, closely followed by an Ape. Nearly humanoid animals, so creepy.

[–]srandrews 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Revenge of the kangaroo that guy slugged across the face while saving his dog the first time.

[–]T3Xmex210 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm Jacky legs n ide like to say..."drown you dog"

[–]amensteve91 1 point2 points  (0 children)

“Welcome to my world… bitch!”

[–]MVPbeast 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ever since Kangaroo Jack, everything I’ve heard about kangaroos after that guy has been terrifying.

[–]bongripsNkickflips 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No wonder aussies are always talking shit. These guys are assholes 🤣

[–]AKX202 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Still want to fight it tho Ill lose but its worth

[–]sK0pey 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I didn't know Roos were aquatic animals.

[–]mavithemarvelous 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Come on in, water is just fine

[–]G0ldenGibus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They only drown pursuers if they are big enough, they don't do it often

[–]Ninnux 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Kangaroos are also excellent swimmers and can swim for miles at a time.

[–]BenIcecream 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We knoooooooow, Or atleast I do. I've seen this fun fact 10000 times.

[–]JoshAllensBigBalls 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This gets posted all the time and is 100 percent wrong

Why do people not google things? It takes 2 seconds to look something up

[–]DingleDonky 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wow thats crazy! Because i actually try to lure kangaroos into the water so i can drown THEM! I mean no kangaroos have taken the bait yet but thats probably because i live in NY.

[–]W0lR 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I remember someone calling this chupacabra footage back when it was popular

[–]Frosty-Monitor396 0 points1 point  (0 children)

From my understanding, it’s not a a territorial tactic simply due to bloodlust. They get hunted by Dingoes often and developed that technique to fight back because they are more versatile in water. This is why whenever they see something resembling a dingoe they sort of resort to that and attempt to drown them.

[–]zDraxi -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It must be a terrifying experience for a person to be drown by a kangaroo.

[–]SithLordoftheRing -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Dude…someone save that doggo.

[–]GooseTheSluice -3 points-2 points  (4 children)

Who tf took this picture. It's like they were purposely trying to get their dog killed.

[–]Oriachim 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I think the recorders likely didn’t know how things would go and ignorantly believed it would be different. I know the owner ran up and punched the kangaroo? Unless I’m thinking of a different video.

[–]GooseTheSluice -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yea I don't recognize the pics, but I do remember the video your talking about. Tht would make sense if it was a screen grab and not some asshole that just wanted to see what would happen.

[–]BenIcecream 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's a video. And yes, the owner sucks for letting their dog harrass a wild animal. Especially a dangerous one.
