Kangaroo and Dog Face Off in Australian Suburb

A golden retriever went face-to-face with a tense kangaroo in a quiet suburban neighborhood in Golden Bay, Western Australia, on December 31.

Tiani Laird filmed this footage from her bedroom window after waking up to the sound of incessant barking on Friday morning.

Laird told Storyful that the dog, known as Barnie, had escaped his owner on their morning walk when they encountered the kangaroo.

“The kangaroo gave three or four quick jabs then stood in a threatening stance,” she said. “The only reason Barnie ran away was due to a gentleman who was helping the owner get her dog back safely,” she added. Credit: Tiani Laird via Storyful
