US festival 'uses roo in boxing show'

05:57 AEST Sat Mar 6 2010a

A red kangaroo that is goaded into fighting a human clown is the star attraction at a festival in the US designed to celebrate Australia.

The Daily Telegraph reports that the BorderFest festival in Hidalgo, Texas, features an event called Rocky Show Circus, involving two kangaroos and their owner, Javier Martinez, who dons the clownsuit.

The festival is sponsored by Kraft, the US owners of Vegemite.

The report says Mr Martinez baits the kangaroo by pushing it and poking it before placing it in a headlock.

If Rocky fights back too much, Mr Martinez's wife Sandra restrains it using a heavy tether attached to a harness around the animal's chest.

I'm not completely sure this is a US owned and operated kangaroo but...whatever!

USA! USA! USA! :p

Mate...hey...uh...whoever is going to do this..

Take my advice..DONT do this.

Piss one of those 'roos off and they will be scraping you off the walls with a sponge. They are strong, they will BITE, they have claws and trust me, muscles that can propel them up to 45 mph will make a MESS of any human.

The feet have claws as well...razor sharp. :eek:

That "boxing" is a mating ritual and to establish dominance...they have bad tempers and VERY short fuses.

Bad idea....
