"My mom's friend saw it one night and told everyone at a party, they all called him insane", writes Lee Dammon in the comments section of a Facebook post by McCormick County Sheriff's Office.

Reports showed the animal staying near wooded areas and away from the road. A Facebook post by McCormick County Emergency Services was shared almost 500 times as of noon on Tuesday.

"I thought dispatch was joking", wrote the police officer tasked with finding and rescuing the kangaroo".
