GREEN CAMP, Ohio (AP) — An 80-year-old man is in fair condition after a kangaroo attacked him for 15 minutes at an exotic-animal farm in central Ohio.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that the Marion County sheriff’s office received a 911 call Tuesday from a woman saying her father-in-law was hurt. Maj. Jeff Cline says the injury happened at Kokas Exotics in Green Camp.

The Advocate of Newark reports the man was in fair condition Wednesday at a Columbus hospital.

The farm owner’s son said a 6-foot-tall, 200-pound male kangaroo attacked the man and that the attack came at breeding time when males can be aggressive.

The son says the kangaroo will be euthanized.
