Residents in the regional Queensland city of Mount Isa were left baffled when they discovered a kangaroo stuck on the roof of their apartment building on November 8.
These images, taken by Paula Boon, show the animal sitting atop a roof, as local emergency crews attend the scene and attempt to rescue it.
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”.
Boon posted on the Facebook page of a local animal rescue ‘Paws Hoofs and Claws’ that the marsupial had been helped down safely. Credit: Paula Boon via Storyful
