It is unusual for a wallaby to escape from his home in Claiborne County Tennessee and be seen running around the county to wind up at the campus Of Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) on Wednesday morning. The good part of this story is that the wallaby did not cause any harm to anyone at the campus before the pet that belonged to a Harrogate resident whose name was not mentioned was being chased by the Claiborne County Sheriff's Department, Animal Control and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources were able to capture the wallaby who was in the forest behind the Grant-Lee Hall building. The wallaby was captured by the Rangers of the Cumberland Gap National Park the same day and hopefully returned to his or her owner. I am wondering if the wallaby was named after the cartoon character BooBoo. Link is upi.com/1991707408292 via @upi

Even in the country where Wallabies come from, we are not allowed to have a pet wallaby like that. America is a lucky country, but we are a nanny state here, in Australia. The resident does need to build a better enclosed space to keep his wallaby in though, higher fences, perhaps..
