This Red Kangaroo lives in a large field with a 12 foot fence around it about 7 miles from our home here in Southeast Missouri. You can see from the two 5 foot gates near where it is standing how tall the enclosure is. There is also a much smaller Eastern Grey Kangaroo living in the same field.
I stopped and asked the son of the family if I could take pictures of this guy one day previously. He said sure but don’t go in the field. He told me that his mom could go in with the Kangaroo and even pet him but if he or his father went in side where it was it would attack them. He said that it had put his father in the hospital once.
I stopped in my car across the road, didn’t get out but was shooting through the window. He noticed me and began to move toward the fence, stopping ever few feet to rip grass from the ground then stand tall and scatter the grass in the air. No Way Would I Try To Get In The Field With This Big Guy, he is taller than I am, and very aggressive!!
