Warning issued after kangaroo seen hopping along SC highway

Rogue Kangaroo Spotted on South Carolina Highway

Police called to reports of rogue kangaroo on US highway

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.
