A horny kangaroo has been hitting on the women of Tennant Creek.
A local told the NT News that she was stalked one morning while walking on the bike track to the Mary Ann Dam.
"I turned around and saw this big kangaroo behind me, so I hastened my steps," she said.
On her way back she says the romantic roo was waiting for her.
"With his male pride on full alert, he started circling me. There was no doubt about what he wanted, the randy old thing." she claimed.
"I yelled at him to go away, waved my hands about and let him know I wasn’t interested, but he was persistent – I’ll give him that."
The hopping Don Juan made another appearance a few days later at the local speedway.
Tanya Wilson said she just thought she was just having an innocent chat with him but it became obvious to the other petrol heads that the Romeo roo wanted more.
Yeah, apparently he was quite aroused," she said.
Then, when the amorous marsupial was confronted by a concerned raceway fan it reportedly punched him in the face.
