Kangaroo back home after being loose overnight in SC

"Every once in a while someone will see it (the kangaroo) and tell their friends then get told they're nuts".

The McCormick County Sheriff's Office located the kangaroo in the Clarks Hill area, near the South Carolina-Georgia border.

Some people who'd heard about a kangaroo hopping along Highway 28 in Clarks Hill didn't believe it was true.

Stearns said he wasn't aware such an animal even lived in the county until Tuesday's spotting.

Obviously, kangaroos are not native to SC.

There is no state law that prohibits someone from owning a kangaroo, according to Capt. Robert McCullough of the S.C. Department of Natural Resources.

They posted an image of the marsupial to Facebook with the caption "I thought dispatch was joking". WRDW reports that it was back in its pen by late Tuesday morning.
