Kangaroo makes its getaway in Alabama, hopping to freedom
WINFIELD, Ala. (AP) — Authorities are searching for a young kangaroo who slipped away from his keepers as he was being hauled through Alabama on its way to a new home.
The animal was being taken from south Mississippi to its new home in Tennessee, said Braxton Basinger of B & H Livestock.
Basinger stopped at his home in Winfield and planned to keep the kangaroo there until he made the final delivery Thursday. A worker let go of the kangaroo while taking it out of the trailer, he said.
Basinger said that he and others plan to search on horseback for the kangaroo.
