Woman attacked by angry kangaroo

A WOMAN has been rushed to hospital with "multiple injuries" after being attacked by a kangaroo at a Coombabah home today.

Paramedics responded to reports a woman aged in her 50s had suffered scratches to her body.

"That's what it looks like, she received scratches on her body from an angry kangaroo," a Queensland Ambulance Service spokeswoman said.

"She received multiple injuries which appeared to be minor."

The woman was taken to Gold Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.

At this stage it is unknown what happened prior to the attack or whether the marsupial involved was a wallaby or a kangaroo.

It comes after two six foot kangaroos squared off against each other in the Currumbin Valley on Saturday - with a video going viral of the stoush.

In May, two boxing kangaroos faced off in an epic fight that lasted 30 minutes at Kooroomba Lavendar Farm - inland from the Gold Coast.
