FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (WWSB) - Fort Lauderdale police spent a good part of the morning chasing down an unusual suspect.

Officers in District 2 worked together to safely capture a kangaroo that was on the run...or hop. Officials turned the marsupial over to the South Florida Wildlife Center. The animal had been previously reported hopping around a Fort Lauderdale neighborhood.

Video from WPLG shows officers dropping the kangaroo off at booking.

The animal is being checked out and appears to be okay.
