'Maynard' The Kangaroo Captured

LEWISVILLE, Texas (AP) - Lewisville police had to hop to it to catch a kangaroo that fled from a veterinarian's yard. "Maynard" the red kangaroo is back at an animal hospital after a frolicking chase that was videotaped by a patrol car's camera.

Police joined animal control officers Sunday after getting a call about a kangaroo dashing around a neighborhood. Their footage shows Maynard bouncing around while people chase the 18-month-old, 3-foot-tall kangaroo.

Dr. Kyle Jones took Maynard home for the weekend so the animal could graze and run in the vet's back yard. A wooden gate blew open and Maynard got out. The animal eventually will be placed with a zoo.
