A legally kept kangaroo in Staten Island escaped and bounced around the city this weekend.
The kangaroo was free for 15 minutes on Saturday under the Verrazano Bridge before authorities could round it up at around 8 a.m. after it managed to escape its enclosure via an unlocked gate in the 6-foot-high fence that was meant to keep him in, according to a New York Daily News report.
Witnesses reported seeing the kangaroo hopping about the streets seemingly without a care in the world, confusing residents, some of whom thought it was a deer at first, according to the report. When they realized it was a kangaroo, they thought maybe it had escaped from a nearby zoo, but police believe a man was keeping it legally.
