The RSPCA is asking people in Cornwall to contact them if they see a wallaby after one was spotted earlier this week.
The animal welfare charity was called by a member of the public who had spotted the marsupial roaming near South Petherwin in Launceston, during Monday evening, 8 May.
RSPCA Animal Collection Officer Peter Ferris and a resident tried to trap the wallaby, but unfortunately it outwitted them.
The RSPCA believes it has escaped from somewhere and would be keen to hear from anyone who may be missing a wallaby.
- Anyone who spots the wallaby or knows where it came from should contact the RSPCA inspector line on 0300 123 8018.
