Well, this is some defence system.

A paraglider had an unexpected clash with a kangaroo, after landing at the Orroral Valley Space Tracking Station in Australia.

In a video posted on Friday , the kangaroo hops over to Jonathan Bishop as he lands, only for it to take a few swings at him on the ground.

"I had been paragliding cross country for two hours near Canberra and had reached a position where I had to land," Bishop explained in the video description.

"I was concentrating on the landing and didn't notice the kangaroo until after I landed. As it ran towards me I thought it was being friendly so I said, 'What's up, Skip?' It then attacked me twice before hopping away. I packed up my paraglider and had to walk several kilometers to get phone reception and call a friend to come and collect me."
