"I was just hoping that it didn't go any further than what it did, I was a bit shocked, it was very scary, I'm not sure what I would have done if it had have kept going," she said.

He was worried the aggressive roo was going to drown his dogs so ran towards them holding his beer.

The kangaroo turned on the man, kicking him into the ground. He managed to successfully wrestle the roo away.

The video has impressed social media users all over the world, who applauded the man's beer-holding skills in the face of adversity.
