DES MOINES, Iowa — Four red-necked wallabies made a break for freedom after a gate was left open on the Australia exhibit at a Des Moines zoo.
Officials at Blank Park Zoo said the male wallabies didn’t get very far during their Sunday night walkabout. Three of the kangaroo-like mammals were captured within hours and the fourth was picked up Monday morning.
Several workers were needed to surround and catch the marsupials.
