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 3 1/2-year-old kangaroo escaped in Winfield, Alabama, on Monday afternoon, Al.com reported. He was seen in cellphone video heartily hopping down a country road.
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.
