In Australia, a giant red kangaroo went all 'Waltzing Matilda' and attacked a woman for no apparent reason. You can bet this was no cuddly "Kangaroo Jack."

Janet Karson of Deanmill was walking her dogs last Saturday when a large kangaroo suddenly appeared on the trail in front of her. It went after one of her dogs first, then turned on Karson, attempting to maul her with its formidable claws.

It's not clear why the marsupial attacked Karson. She was left with cuts to her neck, ears and back and required 20 stitches for her wounds. Watch Karson discuss her ordeal below.
