Firemen capture escaped pet kangaroo "Bennett" near Ostrava

An escaped pet kangaroo who goes by the name of Bennett has been captured following the combined efforts of some 15 firemen and several police officers.

The metre-tall marsupial was found in an abandoned mining area in Paskov, in the northeast of the Czech Republic. The owner of the red-breasted kangaroo, a professional breeder, had apparently underestimated how high a fence he needed.
