    So the kangaroos stand and watch him in case he’s a threat, and then some hop away. Sounds really terrifying.
    I assume he doesn’t cycle on roads with traffic as cars are just way too scary for him to handle.

      Yarp. You can get a similar experience running on the back roads in the Phoenix Park of a morning – the deer tend to panic and run in random directions around you. That said, kangaroos might be more inclined to mess you up.

        I was just thinking of the deer in the Park – they too adopt a frozen stance when humans approach – much like the ‘roos above. I don’t know why people are so terrified – it’s nature.

    Kangaroo 1: So we were all hanging around in our natural environment when this strange creature with an imaging device came along and disturbed our breakie.

    Kangaroo 2: Silly humans.
