A boy was punched in the face by a kangaroo after trying to feed it in a wildlife park in Australia.
The footage, recorded by his mother in Melbourne, shows the boy encouraged to approach the animal before it lashes out.
His father is heard telling him ‘walk straight at it, just walk straight at it’.
But as he gets closer an emu tries to walk between the two and the kangaroo lashes out.
The boy is clearly shocked but seems ok as he rubs his face while walking away.
His father can be heard explaining that he told him to feed the emu, not the kangaroo.
