[O]ne woman [was] savaged by a large kangaroo as she was walking her small, pet dog in a paddock last week. . . Another woman told how a kangaroo drowned one of the four dogs she was walking with a friend, attacking it in a pond and holding it under the water with its hind legs while it hit out at one of the other dogs with its front legs.
The solution is very simple: If you should see a roo coming at you, just slip into the safety of one of Australia’s multitudinous public restrooms. Problem solved.
