An Australian father who was attacked by a rogue kangaroo was knocked flat onto his back, but still managed to hold onto his beer.

Bree Tuohey shared the footage of her father on social media as he rushed down an embankment on the family property to defend his two dogs.

But even as he fell to the floor, he managed to avoid any spillages and propped himself upright with the beer still in hand.

Immediately after knocking Mr Tuohey to the ground the kangaroo set its sights back on the two dogs, which by this point were circling the wild animal in a frenzy. 

His daughter filmed the ordeal from a safer distance, laughing hysterically and attempting to warn her father whenever the kangaroo set its sights on him.

The footage has since been viewed over 100,000 times online. 

The father has been branded an ‘Aussie legend’ by dozens of people online, with some saying he typifies Australian culture.

‘This is so Australian it’s ridiculous,’ one person wrote, while another tagged her international friends in the post and said ‘this is just in case you need an update on Australia.’

The footage comes after video surfaced of a man fighting a large kangaroo in the Australian Outback in an effort to protect his pet pooch from the aggressive animal’s clinches.

The moment the man stood toe-to-toe and traded punches with the marsupial to save his dog ‘Max’ was captured on camera by a friend, who videoed the fight from the safety of his vehicle.

Greig Tonkins, 34, found himself at the centre of international attention in 2016 after the footage went viral. 

It was later revealed that Mr Tonkins was a zookeeper and an avid animal lover.
