Cats and dogs straying into a football or a cricket match isn’t uncommon. However, when two Kangaroos do the same, you know for sure it’s Australia. A video shared by user Sharri Castellari features the marsupials running on the football field during a game in New South Wales.
Since being shared online, the clip went viral on several social media platforms and was noticed by many, including the Australian Football League. “Community footy is back in New South Wales and the locals are…jumping…for joy,” read the tweet by the official AFL account.
