Kangaroo Found In Pasco County

Pasco County Sheriff’s deputies, along with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers, caught the kangaroo Sunday afternoon in the area of 38316 Mickler Road in Lacoochee. According to a Sheriff’s Office press release, the five-foot tall, 200-pound animal had been on the loose since Saturday night and had led deputies on a lengthy chase at one point.

Right now, it’s not clear who owns the kangaroo. While a family living along Mickler Road has a kangaroo farm, they haven’t claimed the animal. Sheriff’s officials say someone can own a kangaroo if they have the proper permits.

The animal, who’s apparently in good shape, is being held in a pen in Lacoochee.
