Woman Viciously Attacked By Kangaroo on Morning Jog
A MELBOURNE jogger has had emergency surgery after she was ripped, kicked and mauled by a rogue kangaroo.
Personal trainer Debbie Urquhart was ferociously attacked by a 2m-high male roo at 6am on Saturday while jogging towards the Candlebark running track near Watties Road.
The 54-year-old said the kangaroo repeatedly kicked her on the right side of her body, ripped her clothes and “threw me around like a rag doll.”
She narrowly avoided plastic surgery and received 20 stitches in her right upper arm, 10 stitches in her right shoulder, and five stitches in three places on her buttocks, along with several other nasty wounds.
