Panic gripped Australian theme park in southern France when 15 kangaroos were found missing Saturday, March 21.
While 13 kangaroos were found Sunday, March 22, following a major search operation, three marsupials are still at large.
“When we arrived on Saturday morning, five pens had been broken open, their padlocks were smashed and the perimeter fence was torn in several places,” said Carole Masson, owner of the nature reserve in southwestern Carcassonne.”We had 15 missing kangaroos — it was complete panic,” she said.
Firefighters, police and gendarmes were mobilized to track down the animals as they bounded through the woods.
“We found five in the park, and some more in the woods nearby. But three are still out there somewhere,” Masson said, adding that local drivers have been alerted the animals could stray onto a nearby highway.
Meanwhile, whatever happened to that zebra in Ohio?

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
