Islam News- A 77-year-old man was killed this weekend by a kangaroo in what is believed to be Australia’s first fatal kangaroo attack in 86 years.

The authorities believe that the man, identified as Peter Eades, was keeping the wild animal as a pet, which requires a permit in Australia. The police did not respond to questions about whether he had one.

A wildlife expert said that fatal kangaroo attacks are extremely uncommon because a kangaroo’s first instinct is to flee. The animals will not attack unless they feel cornered.

Details: Paramedics and the police were called to the scene but could not immediately get to the man because the kangaroo was in the way, the police said. Officers fatally shot the kangaroo, and the man was later pronounced dead at the scene.
