Kangaroo On The Run In Denmark

Authorities have no idea where the marsupial came from.

A kangaroo has been spotted very far away from home.

The marsupial was filmed hopping through Øster Ulslev in Denmark.

Local police then took to Facebook to ask if anyone knows the animal, and requested that they call authorities.

Øster Ulslev is a village located in the southeast of Danish island, Lolland.

Its population is only around 225.

The entire island's population is said to be around 60,000 and appears to have been declining steadily since the 1940s when it was up around 87,000.

The country's climate is vastly different from Australia's, with average seasonal temperatures from around two degrees celsius in winter and around 16 degrees in summer.

It's not the first time authorities have been on the hunt for a rogue marsupial.

Back in January 2018, a wallaby was spotted hopping over the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge in the early hours of the morning.

It was travelling south and hopped across a number of lanes before exiting onto the Cahill Expressway, turning down Macquarie Street and heading for the Conservatorium of Music.

By the time that wallaby was captured it was 'very stressed', according to Taronga Zoo senior veterinarian, Dr Larry Vogelnest, and was assessed for minor injuries.

At the time, WIRES noted there had been an increase in wallaby encounters in populated areas due to increased development in Sydney and the loss of habitat.
