"My initial thought, when I was half awake, was it's a lunatic ninja coming through the window. It seems about as likely as a kangaroo breaking in," Beat Ettlin said.

The three metre kangaroo smashed through the window at the Ettlin's Canberra home on Sunday night.

While Mr Ettlin and his wife and young daughter took refuge under the blankets, the injured kangaroo jumped on top of them, gouging holes in the furniture and smearing blood all over the walls.

The next thing Mr Ettlin heard was his ten-year-old son Leighton screaming from his bed: "There's a 'roo in my room!'"

Mr Ettlin, a 42-year-old chef, wrestled the bleeding kangaroo, got it into a headlock and dragged it out the front door. The kangaroo disappeared into bushes.


"I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play; bring a friend, if you have one."

"Cannot possibly attend first night, will attend second ... if there is one."
- Winston Churchill, in response.
