The man who heroically punched a kangaroo to save his pet dog is a zookeeper and ‘family man’ who was out on a special hunt with a dying friend.
Greig Tonkins, 34, found himself at the centre of international attention on the weekend after a video of him fighting a marsupial to save his beloved dog ‘Max’ went viral.
You can see Greig in the clip below rushing out from his car to find his dog being manhandled by the kangaroo, after a struggle the kangaroo lets the dog go and turns his attention to Greig. The two warriors square off with Greig assuming his fighting stance, he see’s his moment and then, BAM! he launches a right hook across the face of the marsupial leaving him stunned. They both retreat to live another day.
