Kangaroos attacking carrot-bearing tourists spark warnings | BBC News

People have been warned not to feed kangaroos at a tourist spot in Australia following a string of attacks by the animals.

Each week thousands of people visit the grounds of a hospital in Morisset, New South Wales, to see the wild kangaroos.

But some tourists have been kicked, scratched and left with serious cuts by the hungry marsupials, whose favourite snack is carrots.

Local MP Greg Piper says urgent action is needed to educate tourists.

“While kangaroos are cute, they are also capable of inflicting injury,” Mr Piper told the BBC.

He says the problem has escalated over the past few years following a jump in the number of visitors.
