Garden bounder-y triggers hunt
Wallabies are a relatively common sight in Australia – but one was spotted bouncing across a garden in the heart of suburban Bristol.
The Aussie animal escaped after strong winds blew over a fence in its compound.
Footage of the bizarre sight appeared online after bricklayer Ashley Winnett spotted the big marsupial.
His workmate told the Daily Mirror: “I went to the house he was at and there was this wallaby in the garden. We phoned the police and the community support officers turned up and we left it with them.
The wallaby was captured after a hunt involving The Wild Place animal sanctuary, owned by Bristol Zoo, the RSPCA, council officers and PCSOs.

Prison for supergrass?
A goat has been arrested and is facing seven years in prison – for grazing on a neighbour’s lawn.
Police in Chhattisgarh, in central India, described the animal as ‘a repeated offender’ following the bizarre incident.
The animal is facing the same charges as its owner, Abdul Hassan, who was also arrested.
The potential sentence is between two and seven years behind bars.
According to the Daily Mirror, Abdul said: “My goat scaled the boundary wall again and ate flowers and vegetables from the garden. It was taken to the police station and then the police also brought me in."
