Kangaroo on the Loose Near Indiana Airport

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - At first glance, Walt Temple thought the animal he saw hopping through the city was a deer. "But then, why would it be on its back legs?" he wondered.

It turns out a deer wouldn't be hopping on its hind legs. But a kangaroo would. So he called South Bend Animal Care and Control on Monday to let them know he thought he just saw a kangaroo, not far from the South Bend Regional Airport.

"I didn't believe him," animal control officer Sumyr Springfield said.

Then Springfield, who was first on the scene, saw the top of the kangaroo's head. It was time to call for backup.
