A circus kangaroo, nicknamed “Hoppy,” broke away from his captors and is currently running amok in Ireland. No reports of wreaking havoc have been filed…yet.
Not only do the locals seem completely unconcerned about the rogue beast, they actually find the thing amusing and expressed that they hope he is enjoying the unseasonably warm weather Ireland is currently experiencing.
However, they do fear for his safety around water because the kangaroo is only a lieutenant and not yet a captain.
Circus workers tried to no avail to track the animal, so it looks like at some point Hoppy will emerge to start his new life cavorting with leprechauns, eating potatoes, being lucky, fighting fires, drinking heavily and carving up bars of Irish Spring for no reason.
It's like shooting fish in a barrel.
