Female residents are complaining about being stalked by an obviously aroused male kangaroo hanging around a walking track at the Honeymoon Ranges of Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory, Australia.
Northern Territory News reported one female resident was walking along the bike path when she was followed by the well-endowed, amorous kangaroo.
She said: "I turned around and saw this big kangaroo behind me, so I hastened my steps. It seemed a bit odd, but I continued walking and didn't think much about it. Then on the return walk he was there waiting for me. With his male pride on full alert, he started circling me. There was no doubt about what he wanted, the randy old thing.
"It was a huge kangaroo and quite intimidating. I yelled at him to go away, waved my hands about and let him know I wasn't interested, but he was persistent - I'll give him that."
The kangaroo only ran off after other walkers came into sight.
A mother of three encountered the kangaroo at a night-time speedway meeting. She went over to him to see if she could make friends with him.
"I thought it was strange that a kangaroo would come to such a noisy place, but I grew up around kangaroos so I went up to say hello," she said. "There I was having a nice chat to him when I heard others calling out to me, warning me to step away.
"I didn't take any notice of them because I didn't think I had anything to worry about. I thought he was just a cute, friendly kangaroo."
Others at the speedway could see the animal was aroused and were trying to warn her away from him.
"Yeah, apparently he was quite aroused. I'm actually glad I didn't notice," she said.
There were some reports that a man confronted the kangaroo at the speedway, but got punched in the face by the beast.
