Kangaroo escapes animal park with help from boar and fox
Posted August 13, 2012on:
German authorities are hunting high and low for a kangaroo that escaped from an animal park near Frankfurt, with the help of a fox and wild boar.
Three kangaroos named Skippy, Jack and Mick on Saturday night bounded through a hole in the fence of their enclosure made by a helpful fox, Michael Hoffmann, deputy head of the animal park near Frankfurt, said.
One unadventurously stayed within the park grounds and was swiftly recaptured. The other two scrabbled to freedom through a hole dug by a wild boar under the park’s exterior barriers.
Vets snared one of the refugee pair after a long chase, Mr Hoffmann said, but the third had proved harder to track down.
The animal is no danger to the public, stressed Mr Hoffmann.
“He’s super friendly, super nice. Absolutely no danger at all.”
