Dashcam footage shows kangaroo that escaped in Wisconsin

What happens when a kangaroo crosses the road? Dashcam footage from Kenosha, Wisconsin, sheds some light on that question.

Fire chief Carson Wilkinson didn't believe his own eyes when he spotted a kangaroo hopping down a local two-lane highway on September 14 at 6.30am. 

He put a call in to the Kenosha County Sheriff's Department, who thought he was 'losing his marbles' the responding deputy Nicole Sorensen told the Kenosha News.

Dashcam footage shows Joey the Kangaroo enjoying a brief taste of freedom.

The kangaroo named Joey arrived at the petting zoo the night before as part of an attraction that visits every year for pumpkin season 

'I saw something brown coming out of a cornfield, and I thought at first that it was a deer, so I slowed down,' Wilkinson said.

'Then it came out in the road. It stopped right in front of me and looked at me, and it was a kangaroo. I was almost scared to call it in.'
