A Kangaroo Gets His Head Stuck In A Watering Can, But Two Men Come To The Rescue…

An unfortunate kangaroo, who may have been a little too eager for a drink, got its head stuck in a watering can and had to rely on two quick-thinking men to rescue it.

The incident occurred in a paddock near a golf course at Coffin Bay in South Australia on Saturday morning, according to The Advertiser.

Ian Berry, who had just finished up a round of golf, went to check on the kangaroo, while two other men who had spotted the animal earlier, returned to the paddock with a rope and tin cutters. (Scroll through for the images and the video.)

Mr. Berry told The Advertiser what happened next:

They used rope first… one had rope tied around the can and the other had the roo’s tail and they tried pulling but it didn’t work.

At this point it was pretty tired because it had been trying to kick the can off… (the men) were able to get close enough to cut the can off.

Mr. Berry managed to take several remarkable pictures of the two men, Rob Smith and Steve Dew, pulling on the animal’s tail and attaching ropes to the watering can, in an effort to free the roo.

Several attempts later, the distressed animal was freed and promptly hopped away. Mr. Berry said:

It wouldn’t have survived too long if Rob and Steve hadn’t gotten the can off.

He believes that the kangaroo had found some water in the can and stuck its head in for a drink and added:

He is one lucky kangaroo… he hopped off, no doubt with a sore neck, but happy to be alive.

Coffin Bay residents took to the city’s Facebook page to thank the two men. They wrote:

A big thank you to Rob Smith and Steve Dew who saved this large male kangaroo from certain death after being able to get close enough to cut the watering can so as to be able to pull the kangaroo’s head out of the can.
