Loose kangaroo startles Washington state drivers

Tuesday, July 03, 2012

Startled drivers weren't seeing things - it really was a kangaroo hopping down the highway in Washington state.

The meandering marsupial nearly caused a couple of accidents Saturday and police responded, keeping the 'roo off the road while its owner tracked it down and caught it with help from friends.

A local television station reports that the owner lives in an area of the state where it's legal to own exotic pets. The Franklin County resident also has a zebra.
