Kangaroo Hood Ornament

Yesterday morning a friend of mine was on his way to work when he had a close encounter of the Kangaroo kind in his BA Pursuit Ute. Unfortunatley the Ute didn't fair very well. As a result, the Ute is now having some body work done. Thankfully, he wasn't hurt, just a shame about his ute. It could have been worst. The roo came very close to crushing the cabin.

the 1st photo is of the ute i took just the other day, and the next is one taken after the roo worked his magic.

He's only had it for 3 months. Nice ute I've ever been in. Except for Falkeens of course.

Re: Kangaroo Hood Ornament

It's good he wasn't hurt and a terrible shame about the car. I just hope the animal didn't suffer for very long as it looks pretty terminal for him.
