South Carolina sheriff's office responds to calls of kangaroo sighting: 'I thought dispatch was joking'
A South Carolina sheriff’s office received numerous calls of a kangaroo sighting Tuesday morning -- and responding deputies were astonished the far-fetched reports were true.

The McCormick County Sheriff’s Office received calls that a kangaroo was spotted near the South Carolina state line with Georgia early Tuesday morning, FOX 8 reported.  When a deputy arrived at the scene there was indeed a marsupial wandering around rural Palmetto State County.

The department posted a photo of the kangaroo on its Facebook page with a caption that read: “When you get dispatched to an animal in the road and this is what you find.”
