Four kangaroos escaped from a farm in the Chiba Prefecture town of Tomisato, east of Tokyo, on Friday, hopping wild on the roads for a few hours before being captured unharmed, police said.
The kangaroos were being bred by a Tomisato-based trading company.
A keeper apparently forgot to lock the roos’ cage on Thursday night and the marsupial marvels decided to take a look around the local surroundings.
None of the kangaroos were injured during their brief foray into freedom.
The owner of the farm where the kangaroos were being kept apologized.
