Here is a kangaroo during a local soccer match in Canberra.
All cities get the local fauna every now and then, small ones, and bears in sub- or exurbia are a well-known problem in the US. Dogs loose in baseball fields are a perennial favorite. Of course, kangaroos are all over the place and are rightly viewed as pests, and yes, the occasional lion escapes from a zoo, or whatever.
I know bears live and do other things in the woods, but I have no clue about the geography of Canberra. More generally, when a kangaroo hops in your backyard or schoolyard, what do guys do?
With a bear decides to play in your back yard, you get inside and call People With Guns. I ask about what the general suburban response is (and how often it happens) when the kangaroos show up, because the soccer players are tearing ass away from the kangaroo, who to my greenhorn eyes doesn’t particularly seem to be attacking them, and just wants to get the hell out of there.
BTW, do they ever show up, one way or another, lost in a city proper?
