Violence in the Streets of Suburban Australia

FightingWell, I’ve been spoiled for choice this week for videos to show you, I’ve had a tough time deciding. In the end though, it was ‘no contest’. Well, actually it was, as you will soon see.

Wyee Point Suburb is at the southern end of Lake Macquarie in New South Wales somewhere between Newcastle and The Entrance. It’s a stone’s throw from Budgewoi, I stopped for lunch there once during my Australian road trip.

Unfortunately, there’s trouble in Wyee Point these days, alpha males have taken to the streets and they are fighting to impress the ladies.

Now I don’t think it’s clever to fight, is much better to talk things through when you have a problem with somebody else, to see if you can resolve your differences.

That’s not easy to do though, when you are a kangaroo. When you’re a roo, arguments are settled with roo style boxing. This wonderful piece of film has featured on many new stations around the world and I have two videos for you covering it, a short one and a long one.

This is how the story was presented on Perth News…

Doesn’t get much shorter than that, does it?

Here is the long version of the video as shot why the man himself who witnessed the whole thing, Rodney Langham. There is an even longer version floating around that lasts just over 10 minutes, but I like this version best of all. It’s got relaxing classical music in the background, beautiful…

Kangaroos; aren’t they cute?

    Hello Bob,
    I saw this clip on my favorite cable news channel just a couple of days ago (I’m in the U.S.). I don’t think I’ve laughed so hard in ages!

      Hi Rachel W

      Yes, I did see a clip on YouTube that was from CNN, they mixed it in with real boxing, Woody Allen boxing with a kangaroo and dinosaurs. I think a lot of news channels have had some fun with this one.
