In 2018, a kangaroo attacked a family in Queensland, Australia. They were feeding the kangaroo when it became aggressive and attacked. They attempted to repel it with a broom and shovel, but it was ineffective.

A Kangaroo caretaker by the name of Linda Smith had a punctured lung, broken ribs, arm and leg abrasions, and other internal injuries that needed surgery.

Her spouse was slashed numerous times, and her son received cuts and bruises.
