Kangaroo at exotic-animal farm attacks Ohio man
GREEN CAMP, Ohio — An 80-year-old man is in fair condition after a kangaroo attacked him for 15 minutes at an exotic-animal farm in central Ohio.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that the Marion County sheriff's office received a 911 call Tuesday from a woman saying her father-in-law was hurt. Maj. Jeff Cline says the injury happened at Kokas Exotics in Green Camp.
The Advocate of Newark reports the man was in fair condition Wednesday at a Columbus hospital.
The farm owner's son told WCMH-TV the man was attacked by a 6-foot-tall, 200-pound male kangaroo. The station reports the attack came at breeding time when males can be aggressive.
The son says the kangaroo will be euthanized.
