Rogue Kangaroo Spotted on South Carolina Highway

Rogue Kangaroo Spotted on South Carolina Highway

A pet kangaroo was seen hopping along the side of a SC highway on Monday.

In his 31-year career, McCormick County Sheriff Clark Stearns has never gotten a call like this.

Curtis Holt recorded the video, obtained by NBC News.

It is legal to have a kangaroo as a pet in SC, and News 12 is told the owner of the kangaroo has all the proper licensing to keep the animal.

The sheriff's office pointed out that kangaroos are not native in SC but a man living in the county has a license to own the marsupials. WRDW reports that it was back in its pen by late Tuesday morning.

There is no state law that prohibits someone from owning a kangaroo, according to Capt. Robert McCullough of the S.C. Department of Natural Resources.

McCormick County is advising that no one catches or plays with the Kangaroo.
