PASCO, Wash. - Startled drivers weren't seeing things — it really was a kangaroo hopping down the highway in the U.S. state of Washington.

The meandering marsupial nearly caused a couple of accidents Saturday and police responded, keeping the Kangaroo off the road while its owner tracked it down and caught it with help from friends.

KNDO reports (http://is.gd/hrDcO9 ) owner lives in an area of the state where it's legal to own exotic pets. The man also has a zebra.
