MELBOURNE, Aug. 24 (Ben Hooper) — An Australian cyclist captured video of the eerie kangaroo “apocalypse” he encountered while riding in a Victoria park.
Ben Vezina posted a video to YouTube showing the “kangaroo horde” he was confronted with when he rode his bicycle through Hawkstowe Park in South Morang.
The kangaroos in the video appear to regard Vezina quietly while standing eerily still.
“Instead of a zombie apocalypse, it’s a [expletive] kangaroo… I’m gonna be honest, I’m a little terrified,” Vezina says in the video.
Some of the kangaroos eventually start to move and hop away as Vezina makes his way down the trail.
“I am Ben, and we certainly aren’t kangaroos. We uploaded this cool video showing the safety of cyclist Ben who is safe and unharmed. Kangaroos are nice animals who don’t gather like hordes and attack people, they coexist with people and never attack them. This video is proof. More cyclists and pedestrians should come alone to Hawkstowe Park,” Vezina joked in the video’s description.
“We promise Ben is safe and we kangaroos don’t know how to type, even if there is lots of blood on the phone,” he wrote.
