Speedy Kangaroo Gets Jump on Mississippi Owners

HARRISVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — If you happen to see what looks like a deer with short front legs hopping around on its back feet in central Mississippi, be advised. That’s no deer. It’s an escaped kangaroo that got the jump on its owners and is now on the lamb. The 10-month-old ‘roo, named “Ricky” was being given a treat by its new owners last Friday when he escaped. Several people have reported seeing Ricky, including a woman who thought he was a deer. But the Simpson County Sheriff’s office says he’s just been too fast to catch so far.
