der kangaroo

Ah, now this is funny. German police chased an escape kangaroo for 4 hours and eventually caught him, and I just love this bit, using "a giant net". If it were me, I reckon I'd get sick of chasing him after about 4 minutes, and trade my giant net for a giant stein.

Also worthy of note is the caption to the picture of the mutant red-eyed roo that they stuck on the page, which reads: "Kangaroos are native to Australia (Reuters)". Well, gee, thanks Reuters, I would never have guessed - I'd always thought we introduced them from Antarctica because of their usefulness as a beast of burden that could avoid the drop bears patrolling horse trails.
