Let’s bounce! Authorities searching for escaped kangaroos in Arizona
PHOENIX — Authorities are seeking escapees of the Australian hopping variety in Arizona after two kangaroos were spotted on a road.
While the state may boast its own unique creatures, kangaroos certainly aren’t native to the American desert. The Pima County Sheriff’s Office said the animals’ owner called Monday saying the animals decided to make their own sequel to “Prison Break.”
The bouncy critters were last seen near Anway and Avra Valley roads in Marana, Arizona, about 15 miles northwest of the Tucson area. Officials are unsure if the animals are still in the area.
They are also unsure if it is legal to own kangaroos in Arizona.
The video above was filmed by passing motorists, who did not say if a koala aided in the escape.
Perhaps the authorities may want to activate #KangarooWatch online. After all, when two llamas escaped in Phoenix earlier this year, the hashtag #LlamaWatch exploded on social media and the chase received national coverage.
Anyone who spots the kangaroos is asked to call 911, not Crocodile Dundee.
