TUCSON, Ariz. – Authorities say one or two wallaroos, a type of kangaroo, have escaped from a north Tucson home.
Pima County Sheriff's Department spokesman Tracy Suitt said a person reported that at least one pet wallaroo went missing Monday afternoon.
A video captured the kangaroo-type animal hopping down a far north Tucson street. Suitt said that a second animal may also have escaped.
He said it's legal in Arizona for the animals to be kept as pets and that they are not considered aggressive.
The breakout mirrors one by two llamas who escaped from an assisted-living facility in the Phoenix area in February, causing a social media spectacle as live video footage showed the animals averting authorities numerous times.
