Australians Shocked as Kangaroo Hops Along Housing Complex Roof

Residents in the regional Queensland city of Mount Isa were left baffled when they discovered a kangaroo stranded on the roof of their apartment building on November 8.

This footage, filmed by ABC North West Queensland, shows the animal hopping along a roof, as locals look on in concern.

Patrick Buck, a senior firefighter at Queensland Fire and Emergency Services told the ABC that “we thought it was a hoax when we got the call but sure enough, when we showed up, there it was on the roof.”
