Escaped wallaby captured in Pierce County

From The Associated Press:

Pierce County sheriff deputies and animal control officers have caught a wallaby on the run in Gig Harbor.

Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer says the wallaby jumped in front of a deputy’s cruiser while he was on patrol Thursday.

Troyer says the deputy thought the animal was a kangaroo at first, but it was later determined to be a wallaby.

He says the “bugger” was fast and the deputy had to call back up. Eventually the wallaby — named Mia — was netted.

Troyer says deputies found the owners’ residence nearby with “pretty good living conditions” and a pen, but no one knows how Mia escaped.
