    Shark attacks kangaroo in Australia

    A shark has attacked a kangaroo at Torquay, witnesses say.

    The man, Daniel Hurst, said he saw a two or three-metre long shark leapt out of the water and attacked the unfortunate roo as it paddled out to sea.

    ``The shark came right out of the water,'' he said yesterday.

    ``It flipped onto its side.

    ``I didn't see the kangaroo after that.''

    Mr Hurst said he first spotted the roo when it hopped out of scrub and down to the beach where he was walking his dog at about 5pm on Saturday.

    He said the kangaroo entered the water and started swimming out to sea, making slow progress.

    It was about 80 metre from shore, with only its head visible above the water, when the shark struck, he said.

    By the time Mr Hurst got back to his car, he could see a big flock of sea gulls hovering above the water where the roo was attacked.

    ``I still can't believe,'' he said yesterday.

    ``It's the most bizarre thing I've ever seen, and I've travelled all over the world.''

    And while Mr Hurst said friends were sceptical about his story, he was adamant it was true and said several other people on the beach had seen the curious incident unfold.

    ``People can believe what they want, but I've got no reason to make this up,'' he said.

    I guess that is better than the land shark that chased the Kangaroo across the Outback!

    Was the kangaroo feeling suicidal or something? Do they normally swim out to sea?

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!
