A runaway kangaroo has been being tracked down after four days on the loose in Ontario, Canada after fleeing from its handlers. The roo has been filmed frantically hopping along roadsides and across snow-covered fields in Oshawa, an hour east of Toronto, where temperatures are ranging from 2 degrees Celsius during the day to -5 degrees at night. The marsupial was in transit to Quebec when its handlers dropped into Oshawa Zoo &amp; Fun Farm for a stopover on November 30. "As [the animal handlers] tried to unload it into our warm room where the kangaroo would be staying, it jumped over their head out of the trailer and it has now escaped and we are in the process of tracking it down," Oshawa Zoo supervisor Cameron Preyde told CTV News. The search efforts have involved zoo staff, police and animal rescue group Team Chelsea, with a thermal imaging drone deployed to try to track the animal down. Durham Regional Police were called to join the hunt on December 1 after a sighting in Oshawa. "Members attended the scene but were not able to locate the animal and cleared," police said on X. "If you see the kangaroo, do not approach." On December 4, the same officers were again called out and rescued the animal, after being "briefed on the safe capture techniques for kangaroos". "Fun fact: The safest way to capture a kangaroo is to grab it by its tail," a police spokesperson said. "The kangaroo gave up and surrendered peacefully to police officers." A police spokesperson said the kangaroo appeared uninjured and was taken back to the Oshawa Zoo before it is expected to continue the journey to Quebec.
