MIDLAND COUNTY, Texas (KWES) -- You're used to seeing kangaroos down under but what about in the Texas?

On Tuesday night a kangaroo was on the loose in Midland County, and it was all caught on camera.

"I've seen a lot of weird stuff but I've never seen anything like that," Ryan Murray said.

Murray was driving on Highway 158 near Highway 191 when he pulled up on an unusual scene.

"I saw all these cops and I was wondering what was going on and then I saw the silhouette of a little baby kangaroo," Murray said.

Murray pulled out his phone and started recording.

"I couldn't believe it," Murray said. "I was like that's pretty strange."

Midland County deputies couldn't believe it either. The initial call had them scratching their heads.

"They were questioning the call you know, kangaroo? In Midland, Texas? There ain't no kangaroos out here, surely it's gotta be something different," Midland County Sheriff, Gary Painter, said. "They thought dispatch was crazy so they went out there and sure enough they found it."
