Kangaroos may seem friendly, but they’re not to be messed with out in the wild. An Australia woman was attacked by one of the suckers while on a bike ride, but might have avoided serious injuries due to being kicked right in the fake boobs.
From CBS News:
Sharon Heinrich, 45, said Monday that she and her friend Helen Salter, 47, were cycling side by side along a tourist route in the Clare Valley in South Australia state on Wednesday when she saw a large kangaroo standing on a slight rise.
We’re starting right off with something I’m thankful I never have to say.
“Yeah, I was just on a bike path when this kangaroo came out of nowhere.”
I guess that’s what you get for living in a predator-infested penal colony.
“I’ve gone to ride past, I thought: ‘He’s cute,’ and he’s just jumped me and taken out the side of me,” Heinrich said. “As I’m falling, I felt him push off me and then he’s flown to Helen and taken her out.
“He looked peaceful. He didn’t look angry,” she added.
PSA: Wild animals don’t have to “look angry” in order to wreck your shit.
Heinrich said she broke three ribs and will undergo surgery on Thursday to replace ruptured breast implants.
“They worked as air bags and have been ruptured by the ordeal,” Heinrich joked.
I’ve never felt very strongly either way about fake tits, but this story might change that for me. This is the first I’ve ever heard of breast implants actually saving someone’s life, but hopefully it isn’t the last. Props to Heinrich for having a sense of humor about the whole ordeal. If a kangaroo kicked and ruptured my scrotum, I would spend the rest of my life hunting its kind to extinction..
