July 11 (UPI) -- Police in Hungary responded to the southern area of the capital, Budapest, to capture an unusual animal on the loose -- a kangaroo.

Budapest Police Headquarters said officers were called to the Csepel area of the city on Sunday when a kangaroo of unknown origins was spotted hopping loose.


The kangaroo led police on a chase for more than 3 miles before officers managed to wrap it in a blanket.

The marsupial was transported to the Budapest Zoo for care while police investigate where the animal came from.
