An escaped Wallaby found roaming around St Ives has been captured and returned to its owners from Johnsons of Old Hurst in Huntingdon.
The Rural Crime Action Team assisted Huntingdonshire police officers on Wednesday evening at 11pm to capture the wallaby and bring him home.
The kangaroo was found roaming around a resident’s garden in St Ives and is believed to have escaped 24 hours before.
The wallaby was first seen in Ramsey Road just before 11pm and was spotted by a runner, who called Cambridgeshire police. Officers from the Rural Crime Action Team helped to get the kangaroo home and say he seemed to be unharmed by experience.
