The Carroll County Sheriff's Office in Indiana confirmed on Sunday that a male kangaroo was on the loose.
The pet had gone missing near the town of Patton. Police and animal control are on the lookout, as are residents of the town.
The kangaroo was last seen swimming in Lake Freeman. "I was told three guys got him out of the water but as soon as he got out of the water he took off before they could get ahold of him," resident Angie Brown said.
The pet owner also owns a female and a baby kangaroo. They have permits for the animals and reportedly take good care of them all.
