Police Respond To Kangaroos On The Loose In Texas

A police department in Texas had quite a surprising call last week: Kangaroos were on the loose.

“On Sunday morning, officers were sent to a report of a KANGAROO hopping down Fuller Springs Drive,” the Lufkin Police Department wrote in a Facebook post on May 22. Lufkin is a small city in eastern Texas.

The department also attached a video from the police cruiser responding to the call, along with the audio of the 911 call reporting the kangaroo sighting.

A bewildered man can be heard saying, “Ma’am, I don’t know who I need to call,” noting that he could not find a number for animal control that was currently open.

“I’m right here on Fuller Springs Drive … and there’s a kangaroo come up the road and crossed right here,” he said.

The dispatcher, confused, asks the man if the kangaroo “looked like it might belong there.”

The man added that his wife initially thought the kangaroo was a dog, and laughter can be heard on the call.
