Does Lou want a part of me?Incredible moments Two boxing kangaroos get caught up in an epic battle beside a country road
- Forester kangaroo was captured on the side of the road in Huon Valley
- Male kangaroos generally stage battles to establish control
- Kick, punch and scratch were used in hold-ban battles
- Winners are only declared when one roux retreats and retreats
A Tasmanian woman captured the moment when two kangaroos were boxed by the side of the road at a brutal exhibition.
Judith Branson captured the battle at Lucaston in the Huon Valley, southwest of Hobart. She stopped her car to film the marsupials fighting for a pay-per-view special.
The battle between kangaroos is generally between two men trying to establish control. They maliciously kick, grab, and punch while balancing their strong tails.

The loser is the first combatant to interrupt the battle and withdraw.
The two looses appear to fit young specimens of the Forester kangaroo, a subspecies of the Eastern Gray Kangaroo found only in Tasmania.
Forester kangaroos are Tasmania’s largest marsupials, with adult males over 2 meters tall and weighing over 60 kg.
They are usually light brownish-gray and are famous for their thick tails.
Without being bothered by the presence of the car, these two did “hammers and tongs” until they decided it was time for one to jump and return to the much safer pursuit of eating grass.
Winners are only declared when one kangaroo retreats and retreats in a hurry.
