Kangaroo stolen from zoo

Police in Poland are searching for at least two people after a kangaroo was stolen from a zoo.

Managers at the zoo in Krakow called police after arriving in the morning to find the door to Joey the Kangaroo’s cage broken open and marsupial missing.

A police spokesman said they suspect zoo visitors had fallen for the kangaroo, and had hidden in the zoo until closing time, when they then broke into the cage and stole the animal.

“It’s most likely visitors who didn’t want to make do with a stuffed version and wanted the real thing,” he said.

“From the size of the animal we’ve got to be looking for at least two adults for the theft.”
