Eager Kangaroo Attacks Paraglider as He Lands

This kangaroo might be cute but he clearly was not friendly.

Kangaroos are cute and they seem friendly but are they really? In this video brought to you by ViralHog we see one of these adorable creatures attack a paraglider for no apparent reason.

Here is what happened according to the paraglider's own words:

"I had been Paragliding cross country for two hours near Canberra and had reached a position where I had to land. It is the last cleared valley where I could safely land, as over the next ridge there is only wilderness and trees. I decided to land on the concrete slab of the old Orroral Space Tracking Station. I was concentrating on the landing and didn't notice the Kangaroo until after I landed. As it ran towards me I thought it was being friendly so I said 'What's Up, Skip?' It then attacked me twice before hopping away. I packed up my paraglider and had to walk several kilometers to get phone reception and call a friend to come and collect me."

What do you think the kangaroo was doing? Was it scared of the paraglider or did it simply want to play?
