GUNTOWN, Miss. (WTVA) - A kangaroo is on the run in the Lee County area.
John Mark Johnson is the owner of a traveling petting zoo and said the kangaroo escaped on Tuesday afternoon in Guntown.
Johnson and others have been trying to locate the marsupial by flying a drone.
He believes the animal could be anywhere from Baldwyn to Tupelo, including Guntown and Saltillo.
The unnamed kangaroo is very shy.
Do not try to capture the kangaroo, Johnson said. Instead, call 662-401-2738.
