Kangaroo Leads Austrian Cops on Snow Chase

I don’t know why, but kangaroos in other countries – especially ones with snow – always crack me up. This is no exception:

VIENNA, Austria – A kangaroo led police in southern Austria on a snow chase Thursday after it jumped the fence of its cage and decided to explore its wintry surroundings.

The marsupial — discovered on a country road about 3 miles outside the town of St. Veit in the province of Carinthia — kept hopping away from perplexed police trying to rein it in, local police officer Joerg Fortin said.

In the end, a local veterinarian helped capture the animal using a stun gun.
