A kangaroo named Joey busted loose from his pen in Kenosha County Thursday morning and wandered down County Highway L, the Kenosha County Sheriff's Office said.
The department received a call about the animal about 7:14 a.m.
"It was determined that that the kangaroo exited its confine from Jerry Smith’s Farm (7150 18th Street) possibly by kicking the confine gate," the department said in a Facebook post. "The kangaroo decided to wander west on 18th Street (Highway L)."
The farm was contacted and "five year old Joey the kangaroo was safely returned to the farm without any injury to anyone," the department said.
"He didn't put up a fight," according to the sheriff's dept, but likely caused a few double takes from morning commuters pic.twitter.com/9U5rcHHUCD— Deneen Smith (@deneenknews) September 14, 2017
The sheriff's department released a squad car video of the episode Friday.
