Kangaroo home invasion

I almost passed over this story in last week's weird news - but for the ironic twist. On Sunday in Canberra, a kangaroo crashed through the window of a house occupied by a Swiss family. The only warning was the barking of their dog, then the animal broke through the glass, bloodying itself, and bounced on the bed several times. Father Beat Ettlin admitted screaming like a girl as it rampaged through the master bedroom and bounded into the bedroom of Ettlin's 10-year-old son Leighton. But then - mindful of the danger to his children - he heroically wrestled the 6-foot, 90-lb. kangaroo to the floor, put it in a headlock, and pushed it out the front door. Mr. Ettlin, a chef who recently became an Australian citizen, has perfected a means of cooking kangaroo meat. But he now says: "I think I might take a bit of a break from native cuisine."
