Headlines of the Week

Fox and boar help kangaroos escape
Three kangaroos staged a daring escape from a wildlife park near Frankfurt by going under rather than over the fences - thanks to the work of fox and wild boar accomplices.

Skippy, Jack and Mick made it under the first fence of their enclosure by using a hole dug by a fox, said Michael Hoffmann, assistant head of the Hochwildschutzpark Hunsr├╝ck west of Frankfurt.

One got stuck there, but two were brave enough to use a hole dug by a wild boar under the exterior fence to make it to freedom.

One of the kangaroos remained missing on Monday.

Several people nearby have reported seeing the missing kangaroo, but so far he’s managed to stay one jump ahead of zoo officials.

Suggestions that a fox and boar are being questioned in relation to the escape could not be verified.
Amorous bull damages deputy's patrol car
Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to a residence on Jade Lane in Sherwood after callers reported a bull running loose through yards in the area.
According to the report, a deputy arrived at the home and noticed a man slapping the bull on the head and leading him across the yard.
The report says the bull then mounted the man and "tried to mate with him," pinning him between the patrol unit and causing minor damage to the vehicle.

Man frees moose trapped in swing-set

The bull moose’s mishap Sunday was captured on video and shows Sgt. Lane Findlay of the Weber County Sheriff’s Office trying to free the creature’s antlers after getting entangled with the swings.
WeberCountySheriff via YouTube Utah Division of Natural Resources stated swing sets and volleyball nets are very hazardous for the animals.
The video was taken with Findlay’s cell-phone camera and was first uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday. The sergeant said he wanted the encounter filmed just in case the rescue went awry.
“If something happens to me, give this to my wife,” he told the person shooting the video.
