And so a kangaroo hopped into a store…
Australian police had to lock down part of Melbourne airport after an injured kangaroo managed to hop its way into the terminal.
The airport is located in an area frequented by kangaroos.
The kangaroo hopped into the terminal after it was hit by a car, reports say.
“He has got injuries to his feet at the moment. His claws are quite worn, that’s from hopping down the tarmac and things like that,” wildlife volunteer Ella Rountree told the Associated Press (AP).
The marsupials are known to occasionally make their way into the airport, though the tarmac is guarded to prevent them posing a hazard to planes.
The Kangaroo, nicknamed Cyrus, was tranquilised and caught safely before being taken to a veterinarian for examination. Don’t you sometimes wonder if they seek out human help? Weird.
