VIDEO: Boxing kangaroo boxes flagstick at Australian golf course


Kangaroos are the fighting type. They like to box pretty much anything, including fellow kangaroos. Kangaroos are also apparently willing to box offending flagsticks at golf courses.

Aussie golf pro Daniel Popovic shared a video on Twitter on Monday of a 'roo that got into a scuffle with a flagstick on the chipping green at Heritage Golf and Country Club in Victoria.

The kangaroo tries taking down the flagstick because it perceives it as some kind of threat, throwing a haymaker before getting shooed away by Popovic. The kangaroo then moves on to another flag to continue getting himself some.
