Okla. woman, pet kangaroo may again be on the move

TULSA, Okla. (AP) – An Oklahoma woman who owns a partially paralyzed kangaroo as a therapy pet may be on the move yet again, a day after leaving town over a spat with city officials about keeping the animal.

Christie Carr and Irwin the kangaroo moved from Broken Arrow to McAlester late Wednesday after she said city workers were threatening to take the animal or fine her for violating a city ordinance. The city denied any threats were made.

On Thursday, Carr said she was planning another move after McAlester’s assistant police chief said he was exploring whether it was legal for Carr to keep Irwin within city limits.

Carr said she planned to relocate to Foyil, a rural town in northeastern Oklahoma, and temporarily stay at a friend’s house.
