Zookeepers Recapture Fugitive Wallaby

It has been revealed through a new report that a Tasmanian wallaby that was previously successful in escaping from a fishery has now been captured.

According to the reports, two wallabies were sold to Francis Gilhooly, owner of Leadburn Manor, informing him that they do not swim. It was asked to them that it would be perfectly safe to keep wallabies on an island.

It is therefore that he kept the two of them on their three acre islands. However, the report says that both of them had run away, swimming off on a pond at Leadburn Manor, West Linton. While one of the two was caught on Wednesday evening, the other one was able to evade the capture.

Francis Gilhooly told that the information was incorrect as both of the mischievous marsupials were found swimming off the island merely within six hours of being bought. Also, he said that the second one has been apprehended with much difficulty.

As per his statement, it has been eventually found near the boundary between Midlothian and the Scottish Borders after midnight. The zookeepers spotted the 2ft wallaby feeding on a 40 acre estate, where they ensnared it using fishing net.

It is being said by the owners that the incident has made them face a distressing time. Wallabies can attain speeds of up to 40mph, which makes it really tough to catch them. They had to search the area for about 30 times to capture the second wallaby, said they, and it was found all of a sudden when they had almost given up.

"We will not be releasing them back onto that island because we can't take the chance of them swimming off again so instead we are building a big 1,000 sq m enclosure for them", avowed Mr. Gilhooly.
