A brave beagle has been filmed in a tense standoff with a buff kangaroo after stumbling across the uninvited guest.  

Natasha Robinson, 44, witnessed the unique encounter in her backyard in Victoria. 

She was alerted to to the standoff by her dog barking and was shocked to find the massive roo towering above her ten-year-old beagle Dodger. 

Footage shows the buff kangaroo stand tall as the stubborn beagle continued to bark at the stranger.

Ms Robinson tried to call her pooch back into the house but he refused.

Deciding there was no chance she would go anywhere near the roo, Ms Robinson continued to watch the tense standoff before witnessing something bizarre.

After a 20-minute stalemate and to the shock of Ms Robinson, the kangaroo began to urinate without breaking his intimidating stance. 

‘Watch out dodge,’ she screamed. 

Dodger, who appears unfazed, eventually begins to lose interest in the intruder with the pair walking away in a peaceful truce. 

Generally, kangaroos fight to see who wins a mate. The most dominant male is the prime partner for the female. 

A dominant male kangaroo will usually show other males who’s boss in a number of ways such as standing erect on its tail and hind-feet, and urinating.

Other signs include rubbing its chest from side to side, walking slowly on all fours with an arched back, grabbing tufts of grass and sparring. 

Queensland’s Department of Environment and Science advises residents to move away if they encounter a kangaroo exhibiting that type of behaviour.
