Man beats up 'kangaroo Jackie Chan' in house. - March 9th 2009, 02:56 PM

http://www.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/asiapc...les/index.html


What do you do when your 10-year-old son wakes up in the middle of the night screaming, "There's a 'roo in my room!"

If you're Beat Ettlin, you wrest the marsupial into a headlock, drag it down your hallway and toss it out your front door.
Ettlin and his family were woken early Sunday when a 6-foot-tall kangaroo crashed through a window, landed on their bed and thrashed around their house in the suburb of Garran, south of the capital of Canberra, Australia.
"At first, he (my husband) thought it was a lunatic ninja," said Ettlin's wife, Verity Beman. "It leaped through the window, this martial-arts kind of figure. It was very Jackie Chan."
The family's one-story house is in a suburb that butts against a kangaroo reserve.
About 2 a.m. Sunday, their dog began barking furiously. Possibly possums, they thought.
The family had put up with possums scampering across their roof every night since they moved in three weeks ago.
Moments later, the window was smashed and a black figure landed on their bed.

Ettlin, after gathering his wits about him, exclaimed, "It's OK. It's only a kangaroo," Beman recalled.
"I was cowered under the quilt, thinking, 'No, it's not OK,'" she said.
The kangaroo jumped on top of the blanket that Beman and her 9-year-old daughter were hiding under. It then leaped onto the nightstand, punched holes in the furniture and left blood stains on the wall as it bounced into their son's room.
"That's when his male instinct kicked in," Beman said of her husband.
After putting the 90-pound creature in a choke hold, Ettlin kept it low to the ground and pulled it toward the front door. He knew that kangaroos carry their strength on their hind legs, Beman said.
"He held it by one arm. He opened the front door with the other, then the screen door," she said. "It bounced across our veranda and bounced away."
Ettlin is a chef, originally from the Swiss city of Stans. Beman thinks he would not have tackled the kangaroo so readily were he Australian.
"They would be fully aware of the risk," she said.
The house in shambles -- with blood and shattered glass everywhere -- Ettlin stood surveying the damage in his shredded underpants. Scratch marks ran down his leg, but otherwise he was fine.
"I kept marveling at what he did," Beman said. "I called him my hero. My hero in Bonds undies."

Kangaroo's can be really dangerous, so I don't blame him for dragging it out the house the way he did. "My hero in Bonds undies" - classic lol


Who do you carry that torch for, my young man?
Do you believe in anything?
Or do you carry it around just to burn things down?

Meet me tonight on the turnpike my darling,
where we believe in everything.
If we sweat all these debts then we're sure to drown,
so let's strap ourselves up to this engine now
with our God who we found laying under the back seat.

Haha. The wildest creatures we get in the house, here, are birds and squirrels. I'd freak if a kangaroo got in.

I must say I would too. We've had deer jump through picture windows around here. I would not want to find a buck in my living room. Those horns can do some major damage. We once had a dog catch a small buck and he took his horns to her leg. Cut her clean to the bone with one good poke.

I've nearly had a bird fly through my window once. A large bird of prey was chasing it and it flew slam into the window. We have a goldfish pond near that window. The bird landed on the pond (which was frozen over) and the other bird carted him off. Quite the scene for me who was home alone and feverish.

I'd probably die if that ever happened to me. Because I'd ignore all possible danger and be like "I WANNA PET IT!" and probably run up and start trying to cuddle it, and then it'd probably kick me in the head.

I'm not even kidding. That's what would happen >.>

I'm proud of that guy for not being killed by it though.

than live forever.
We will all die so gloriously, that having ever lived will seem like folly.

Oh wow. I'd freak out if I saw a kangaroo in my house. I'd go running the other way.
