The ambulance service reported that the animal first kicked the miserable woman and then trampled on her several times. The woman was taken to hospital, where she will have to recover from the attack for several days.
It is not entirely clear why the animal would attack the golfer. “She was on the right track towards the Green Zone when the animal attacked her from her side,” Ambulance Director Joel McEwan told Australian media. “Without warning, it’s 9 a.m.”

“I fell first on the stairs, then got trampled a few more times,” McEwan said. Just as the attack suddenly began, the animal suddenly stopped sealing, turned around and jumped away again.
The woman was severely beaten and sustained injuries to her face, head, arms and legs. She was conscious when she was moved away. The wound to the face had to be sutured anyway.
Kangaroo attacks are rare, but they are often spotted on golf courses. In October of last year, a video of amateur golfer Wendy Buick went viral as she was curiously approached by a large group of kangaroos because she wanted to go off. By the way, this happened on the same path.
The Australian Golf Association even explained what the rules say if a kangaroo upset a golfer and shared this post on Instagram for a lazy morning on the golf course.
