Escaped Kangaroo Recaptured In Oklahoma County

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A kangaroo who escaped from its owner's property in rural northwest Oklahoma City is safely corralled by three Oklahoma County Sheriff's deputies.

Sheriff's spokesman Mark Myers says authorities received a 911 call about the escaped animal Saturday morning. The man who made the call told the dispatcher about seeing the kangaroo and said that he was sane and not drunk.

Sure enough, Myers says, deputies found the kangaroo jumping down a road and eating grapes from nearby farms. Using their vehicles, they guided the animal back to its owner's property.

Myers says the kangaroo's owner also owns other exotic animals.
