Australian golfers chased from course by furious kangaroo

Skippy was about to get punchy and kicky.

Two Australian men had to flee for their lives when they were chased by a furious kangaroo on a golf course in Australia.

James Macklin and Connor Reeves, who review courses on YouTube, were confronted by the angry animal at Queensland’s Hervey Bay Golf Club on the country’s north-east coast.

But the pair have been forced to defend themselves from accusations that they provoked the animal by hitting balls at it.

“We didn’t hit any golf balls at the Roo,” Macklin wrote on Facebook.

“I went to have my shot first and it chased me on foot so when Connor went to have his, I got my phone out just in case he chased Connor which ended up happening.

“No harm was caused to the kangaroo!”

The hilarious video has now gone viral as it shows the men screaming in terror – but they insist they were taking no chances when chased by the unpredictable animal.

On YouTube, they wrote: “Anything could have happened and we all know a Roo kicking someone wouldn’t end well.

“But the overreaction was perfect.”
