Twice in one week.

A local kangaroo that was on the loose Tuesday, made another break for it on Thursday.

McCormick County investigators say the owner accidentally left the pen unlocked, causing the bouncing marsupial to make a run for it.

The kangaroo was out for only 30 minutes before it was wrangled back home.

Deputies are currently encouraging the owner to set up a more secure pen for the animal.
