Mathew Amor decided to organize a small group of friends to take a sick young man called Kailem on a boar-hunting trip at his property in Condobolin, New South Wales. Kailem, who had cancer, died last week, but back in June,
“Kailem wanted to catch a boar,” said Amor.
“We were driving along, the dogs are loose. They are trained to smell pig’s blood, and picked up a scent.
“The dogs went past 20 kangaroos, which they are trained not to touch.
“Anyway, this big buck got a hold of my friend’s dog. It just grabbed him.”
And the rest, as they say, is history.
The dog rescuer and ready-made Kangaroo trainer in the video is Greig Tonkins who happens to be a a zookeeper at Taronga’s Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo.
He didn't hurt the Kangaroo -- he just spoke to it in a a language that a Kangaroo can actually understand.
