Shawnee family continues search for missing kangaroo
Lucy Sparkles the kangaroo disappeared on Thanksgiving, but her Shawnee owners think it might be easier to spot her now following the snow.
Some calls have said they saw the kangaroo traveling with a herd of deer.
“I don't know if it's possible that she's there, but it's worth watching out for,” Menhusen said.
Menhusen's family has responded to sightings in Lincoln, Pottawattamie and Oklahoma counties. The animal could still be moving around, but it's also possible she's been struck by a vehicle or picked up by someone who intends to keep her.
Menhusen said anyone who thinks they've seen Lucy or her tracks should take pictures, if possible, and visit the Facebook page “Bring Lucy Sparkles Home” or call 990-4867.
