Police hunt fugitive kangaroos in France

Two kangaroos that escaped from a children's reform centre in France were seen bounding off in their newfound freedom near the eastern city of Lyon on Friday.

About 20 police officers and firemen and two sniffer dogs were tracking the marsupials and driving them slowly back to their enclosure.

An officer was standing by with a tranquilliser dart in case the animals became dangerous.

Just wondering why the two kangaroos were at a children's reform centre in France in the first place? Confused

probably the result of poor parenting. There you are, an immigrant in a new land, parents trying to make a living so they dont have quality time spent with their joeys. Its a sad but all too common story.

Probably didnt like brie either.

Well, kangaroos as well as dolphins are know to have a soothing effect on disturbed children.

Now, I didn't know that Dadpad and wife were in France...

Neither of your theories sound remotely plausible.

I think they were kidnapped & taken to France against their will, poor babies!

And is it legal to own kangaroos in France?

Oh, yeah, it is!

And the plausibility of those theories are confirmed in France.

You know, msolga, the doubts one can have don't change the reality of others.

(How's that as a sig line?)

I like it!

Kind of deep!


However, Francis, I truly cannot imagine that a couple of bounding kangaroos would have a soothing effect on troubled children. Dolphins, perhaps. But kangaroos? That's stretching things a little, don't you think?

Kangaroos can disembowel a kid.

In the US, when we have the urgent need for a marsupial, we have a handy little guy whose only defense is to do a theatrical death scene . They present themselves as carrion. (So they can easily be transported by plane)

I do think it's something about the protection their pocket offers...

Phoenix

Now who mentioned giraffes?

Not me.

I was suggesting that Francis was being a bit flexible in his explanations. Something a bit fishy about all this, I think.

A thousand apologies Francis. As I checked my calendar for myschedule on August 7th, this year, I noted that I was between ports and mostly fishing so I missed this delightful entry

"As migration approached, two elderly vultures doubted they could make the trip south, so they decided to go by airplane.

When they checked their baggage, the attendant noticed that they were carrying two dead raccoons. "Do you wish to check the raccoons through as luggage?" she asked.

"No, thanks," replied the vultures. "They're carrion



After all, anything is original as long as you never get caught in the act of plagiarizing
