After losing his home to bush fires, a 60-year-old man had to reside in a caravan while his home was being repaired. As he stepped out of the door of his mobile home, he accidentally trod on a wombat.
The creature curiously reacted and repeatedly made an enraged attack and managed to drag the guy down to the floor, wounding his arms and legs. The struggle lasted for approximately twenty minutes.
By some luck, the 60-year-old managed to grab hold of a hatchet and kill the wombat. The man was taken to a nearby hospital and received treatment for arm and leg bites.
