This Brutal Kangaroo Fight Is Batshit Insane

How kangarude.

There's a big weekend of sporting battles coming up in Australia, with the NRL Grand Final in Sydney, the AFL Grand Final in Melbourne and The Wallabies playing England in London. But they've got nothing on these feisty 'roos.

Quinton Turner and his dad were driving home from the pub in Calliope, Queensland on Sunday evening when they came across the two kangaroos going toe-to-toe in the middle of the road.

“I saw two ‘roos up ahead so I slowed down and turned my lights on. When we got closer we realised they were punching the shit out of each other," he told BuzzFeed News. "It was pretty hectic."

Turner says the kangaroos were going at it for at least 20 minutes, and he eventually "got bored" and had to drive up onto an embankment to get around them.

Turner says he's been "blown away" by the reaction to the video, which has been viewed more than 1.5 million times since it was uploaded on Sunday night.

It's fairly common for kangaroos to punch on like this, especially as the weather warms up and mating season approaches. But also, these particular kangaroos might just not like each other very much.
