Police in Australia say an Australian man died after being attacked by a pet kangaroo.
On Monday, a relative discovered the 77-year-old man with severe injuries at his home in Redmond, about 400 kilometers (250 miles) south of Perth.
The kangaroo stopped paramedics from treating the man when they arrived at the rural property.
The marsupial was forced to be shot by police. The man was killed on the spot.
A police spokesperson told the media that the man had been attacked by a kangaroo earlier in the day.
Although there are approximately 50 million kangaroos in Australia, attacks are uncommon.
This is Australia’s first fatal case since 1936.
