CLARKS HILL, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina’s most talented escape artist may be a kangaroo.
News outlets report the McCormick County Sheriff’s Office announced Thursday that a mischievous marsupial was roaming the county for the second time in three days. Maj. Robert Christie says authorities have yet to discern how it escaped, but it’s likely the kangaroo found a weak spot in the fence or a gate left open.READ MORE: 2 Men Killed After Crane Falls On Pickup Truck On Texas Interstate
