Australia is a dangerous place filled with all sorts of wild, fearsome animals. There are dick-biting spiders, drug-uncovering crows, fake doctors responsible for botched testicle surgeries, and—based on the video below—at least one man unafraid to punch a big-ass kangaroo directly in the face.

The clip shows a man riding in the back of a pickup truck through what appears to be the Australian Outback. A few seconds into the video, the truck stops and the man leaps out and runs towards a kangaroo, which has a dog in a headlock. The man tries to scare the kangaroo before the two face each other as if they were about to box. The man throws a single punch, striking the ‘roo in the face, then turns around and gathers his dog.

Steven Stubenrauch posted the video to Facebook yesterday morning. My buddy from Australia sent me this,” he wrote in the caption. “Them roos are wild as hell.”

The video has since been viewed more than 3.5 million times.
