Kangaroo temporarily escapes Oklahoma petting zoo

Oct. 7 (UPI) -- A kangaroo that escaped with two others from an Oklahoma petting zoo caused a stir when it was spotted on a local road.

Oasis Animal Adventures in Eucha confirmed the facility's gate wasn't properly shut Tuesday night, and staff arrived Wednesday morning to find four kangaroos outside of their pens.

Three of the marsupials managed to get outside the facility, and two of them, both females, were soon recaptured across the road from Bush Creek.

Oasis officials said the third kangaroo, a male named Big Red, evaded capture for hours.

Big Red was caught on camera hopping in a road near Grand Lake and the footage was posted to Facebook by Brecka Mizell Bagby.

"Is anyone missing a kangaroo?" Bagby wrote.

Big Red later returned to the animal park and was guided back to his pen by employees forming a human chain, Oasis officials said.
