Reward offered for missing wallaby

Posted July 1, 2009

— The Rolesville Veterinariary Hospital is offering a reward for the return of Sydney the Wallaby. The animal, which looks like a small kangaroo, jumped a fence Wednesday afternoon and made his escape, Dr. Jennifer Hummel said.

Hummel described the wallaby as about three feet tall and friendly towards people.

The owners of the animal, Noah's Landing Petting Zoo in Coats, brought him to the hospital for treatment of an abcessed tooth. After his treatment, he was playing outside when he jumped the fence, Hummel said.

Anyone who sees the Sydney is asked to call 919-562-0100.

    Humping things. Ha ha! The news is more of a comedy show today than informative. Naked passengers, 3+ Michael Jackson stories, race arguments. I love it, but I hope they find the wallaby.
