Kangaroos Running Wild Near Paris

Fifty kangaroos escaped from a French nature preserve 30 years ago are happily living in a forest west of Paris. A park employee says, "The kangaroos' presence in the forest didn't happen yesterday. They began making the woods their own after some people who tried to steal them released several of them." There are even Kangaroo Crossing signs on local roads. Francoise Grangeon, mayor of a town near the kangaroo-infested area, says, "Kangaroos have been part of our daily life for 20 years."
