I've always said roos are stupid

With no one except two mates and myself riding in the forest I was going along at walking pace and for some reason a kangaroo decided to hop into me from the right hand side hurt a bit. 

I've asked many times why run at the only thing in the forest making a noise 

I've had quite a few hits and misses but this one was just stupid

Roo's are pretty stupid but Emu's are much worse

I've had a couple of emu ncounters yep just as stupid 

Did a bit of research on badgers looks like they can bite if you disturb  them

 

From other forum users deer also have no traffic sense

 I found Emu's to continue to run down the road in the same direction as the bike but risky to go either side in case of a sudden detour, I have a Emu in the video I posted from yesterday.  In the section near where I came across the Emu I have come across a couple of deer, one male & one female, also come across two in other areas as well, Roo's don't like the noise & mostly turn away but I have found a couple of 6'reds that won't move & stand their ground....big bastards
