An elderly woman who was kicked and slashed by a kangaroo is lucky to be alive after being rescued by her brave dog, who fought the roof for 45 minutes until help arrived.
Pam Baldwin, 71, was walking her Rottweiler named Bundy when she was attacked from behind by an aggressive kangaroo on Nail Can Hill in Albury, Western Australia.
She was kicked in the stomach and cut across the arm by the vicious pal, who threw Ms Baldwin to the ground and had her arm stitched up.
When her trusty companion got wind that his owner was in trouble, he jumped into action and chased the kangaroo off before the kangaroo set his sights on him.
Ms Baldwin said the kangaroo then tried to drown Bundy in a nearby dam before she and her dog were rescued by paramedics after she managed to alert nearby hikers.
Speaking on Neil Mitchell’s 3AW radio show, Ms Baldwin said she felt something was behind her before she was thrown to the ground.
“I just felt like someone was behind me, and I turned around and was like, ‘Oh…’ and he [the kangaroo] just looked me in the face and the next moment he banged. I gave him a few choice words and then went down,” Ms. Baldwin said.
“I don’t know if I passed out or he knocked me out, but I remember Bundy coming and jumping over me and chasing the kangaroo away.
“He protected me, he chased it away.
“Bundy fought the kangaroo for about 45 minutes. He wouldn’t let the kangaroo near me.”
Ms Baldwin was told Bundy was about 20 seconds from death when he was eventually rescued, utterly exhausted.
Horrified witnesses said the kangaroo was at least 1.80 meters tall.

Ms Baldwin said the aggressive encounter may have been due to the kangaroo’s mating season, but it was not the first time she had encountered an angry kangaroo.
“A couple of times last year I had an encounter with another Roo and he would always hide in the grass and you would go with it and the damn thing would jump on you,” she said.
Ms Baldwin admitted it was probably time to find another hilltop place to stroll with her trusty companion.
