Officers at McCormick County Sheriff's Office were dispatched after receiving reports of the rogue animal on a highway on May 15.
The kangaroo was hopping alongside Highway 28 near Clarks Hill, which is outside of Augusta.
The McCormick County Sheriff's Office was astonished to find a kangaroo wandering around Palmetto State County. A Facebook post by McCormick County Emergency Services was shared almost 500 times as of noon on Tuesday.
So did David Yeldell, a lifelong McCormick County resident.
"I was shocked. I ain't never heard of that".
Turns out, the animal's owner has a permit for exotic animals.
Around 6:30 a.m., a deputy was called to a kangaroo spotting on S.C. 28 near the Georgia state line in rural SC, according to WIS.
The kangaroo was captured and returned to its owner.
