An Australian man put his boxing skills to the test against an unusual opponent, an “aggressive” kangaroo that was trying to attack his beloved dogs.
Cliff Dess, a grandfather who is a former MMA trainer, told 9 News Australia about his encounter with what he called a “six-foot mad roo,” that he wrestled to the ground at one point after it was threatening his dogs.
“Can’t stand up and fight it because it had too many sharp instruments,” Dess told the outlet, recounting how he was “whacking” the animal with a stick to “keep it at bay.” (Video: 9 News Australia)
With his fenced dogs barking away, the 59-year-old went at it with the feisty roo but admitted that it wasn’t an easy battle with the animal being “in an aggressive mood.”
Recounting how “he put his claws up and started chasing me,” Dess said ultimately, “I fought it off with a stick,” and “took it to the ground,” since that was “the only way I could deal with it.”
In the six-minute brawl, the former boxer said the animal bit his finger and “gouged me on the top of the head.”
The kangaroo apparently did not sustain any injuries, though Dess said it continued to try to get at his dogs for another 20 minutes afterward.

Stop this by fencing and removing sources of food or water that attract kangaroos,” according to the Queensland government website .
“If you are approached by an aggressive kangaroo you should keep it at a safe distance so that it can’t kick or scratch. For example, hold up a stick or a branch, or stay behind a fence or […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
