Kanga Breakout!

In the second world war, when Allied prisoners of war were held in German camps, they would often form escape committees and cooperate on plans to escape, so that at least some of them might find their way to freedom. The prisoners would also seek the assistance of people outside the camp - criminals or people who simply sympathised with their plight - in their attempts to break out. So it seems also to be with animals held in the Hochwildschutzpark Hunsr├╝ck, a wildlife park to west of Frankfurt. Three kangaroos managed to escape from their enclosure, through tunnels dug for them by a fox and a wild boar. Camp guards quickly recaptured two, but the third is still on the run.

Reports that the rogue kangaroo may have commandeered a motorbike and be on his way to the Swiss border have not been confirmed by the German authorities.
