Mr Striegl, 25, was running up Canberra's Mount Ainslie during his lunchbreak yesterday and did not think twice when he spotted one of the resident roos nearby.Actually, the slavering attack kangaroo probably saved him by knocking him out before he jogged into the territory of the drop bears.
The bushland reserve in the nation's capital is popular with joggers and cyclists, and assaults by the marsupials who share the mountain are rare.
Mr Striegl was knocked unconscious and remembers little about the attack...
What gun for 'roo, anyway?
