Bay St. Louis Kangaroo Sightings Have Animal Control Perplexed

An unusual sighting in Bay St. Louis has some residents imaging they might be living in Australia. The Bay St. Louis Animal Control Officer has received three calls of a Kangaroo sighting this week.

All three callers say they saw a kangaroo about four feet tall, hopping around the area of Seminary Drive and Highway 90 on Thursday. When our cameras went to the area, we saw no animals.

The animal control officer is investigating the sightings, and says it's possible someone owned an exotic pet that got away recently or possibly during the storm. But so far no one has reported a Kangaroo missing.

If you happen to see a kangaroo, you are asked to contact the Bay St. Louis Police Department at (228) 467-5101.
