Best news story of the decade!

kangarooTen years of stuff spilled on the highway, rampaging animals, and iconic holy images appearing in unlikely places. How do I pick a favorite? Actually, it's not even difficult! It was January, 2005, when reports of a wayward kangaroo starting coming in from west of Madison. A kangaroo? Hopping around in the snow? You betcha. I live for this stuff. It didn't create the media frenzy of, let's say, a little boy flying away in a balloon, but this was HUGE. For a day or so, people who live in the Dodgeville-Mineral Point area were reporting sightings. Were they sure it wasn't just a big mouse or maybe a jackrabbit? Nope, it was a real live kangaroo, which law enforcement authorities finally coaxed into a barn, and peacefully took it into custody after offering it some apples. It's still an unsolved mystery: where did the kangaroo come from, and how did it wind up in wintry Wisconsin?  We may never know.  I guess you could always go to the Henry Vilas Zoo and ask her. But so far, she hasn't been talking. If you click here, you can watch an old report on the story from Joel DeSpain, a former reporter from Channel 3 in Madison.

I still think there is a secret kangaroo farm somewhere in western Wisconsin.
