Break out the Tequila...

Rogue roo sparks chase in German town

A rogue kangaroo has boxed its way out of its enclosure in a small German town and set off a chase with baffled emergency responders, the local fire brigade said.

"I must be dreaming," fire chief Thomas Glatz said when he was alerted by a local resident that a young kangaroo was on the loose in Siegburg town, authorities said in a statement.

The hopping fugitive, whose origin was initially unclear, evaded attempts by the police and the fire brigade to trap it, encircle it or lure it with dog food.

Firefighters were finally able to net the 70-centimetre tall kangaroo unharmed and bring it to a nearby shelter.

It has emerged that the animal and a second kangaroo were kept as house pets, named Tequila and Sunrise by their owners.

Siegburg is 25 kilometres from Cologne, in the west of Germany.
