An Australian cyclist’s video camera captured the moment a kangaroo jumped over one of his riding companions and clipped the man’s helmet.
Peter James Roberts posted a video to Facebook showing footage from his Sunday ride with some friends in Humbug Scrub, South Australia.
The video, which shows a rear view from Roberts’ bike, captured the moment a kangaroo jumped over one of the cyclists, bumping the other man’s helmet.
The stunned — but still upright — cyclist, Michael Bland, said it felt like “either [the kangaroo’s] tail or foot just clipped” his helmet.
“Today’s excitement: Attack of the Roo!!!” Roberts wrote. “Note. No animals were harmed in the making of the video.”
“Michael Bland however needs to buy a lotto ticket!” he wrote.
