    A kangaroo is on the run in Germany after breaking out of a wildlife park, with a fox and a wild boar as his suspected accomplices.

    Michael Hoffmann, assistant head of the Hochwildschutzpark Hunsr├╝ck west of Frankfurt, said on Monday the male kangaroo was one of three that escaped overnight on Saturday with the inadvertent help of the menagerie that lives in the local woods.

    Hoffmann said the kangaroos got out of their enclosure after a young fox snuck into the park and dug a hole next to the cage's fencing. Two of the three were then able to escape the park entirely through another hole dug by a wild boar under the exterior fence.

    Wonder what the kangaroos used to bribe the fox and the boar?

    This story reminded me of this wallaby I've heard of - he has been missing for over a year! :(

    Missing wallaby spotted all around Edmonton

    He's still out there - sightings of him a year later - surely he's had some help ;)

    There's a 1000 reward for him:

    It's by no means qualifies as news that makes me smile tho - not until Tyson is found!

    Well accept I realize maybe he prefer's his freedom...can't blame him!

    You think we could make a thread for him under "missing"?? would it "float"??

    It's really sad to think he's out there all alone, well accept for the assistance he has been receiving from others in the animal kingdom.

    ;)

    Makes me want one, but I kno it's wrong & I would never!

    You're sure cute tho Tyson! Where you at?!
