OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A kangaroo who escaped from its owner's property in rural northwest Oklahoma City was safely corralled by three Oklahoma County Sheriff's deputies.

Authorities received a 911 call about the escaped animal Saturday morning, spokesman Mark Myers said. The man who made the call told the dispatcher about seeing the kangaroo and said that he was sane and not drunk.

"This was definitely one of our more unusual calls," Myers said.

Sure enough, deputies found the kangaroo jumping down a road and eating grapes from nearby farms. Using their vehicles, they guided the animal back to its owner's property, Myers said.

The kangaroo's owner also owns other exotic animals, Myers said.
