If you live in Australia, chances are you're going to be familiar with kangaroos invading your personal space. But it turns out that dealing with kangaroos isn't unique to their homeland as police in Ohio had to deal with a runaway 'roo last week.

Officers in North Ridgeville were called to a scene on a road at 5am on November 27th involving the kangaroo by the name of 'Foster' who had escaped his pen and was having none of the police trying to bring him back home, squaring up to one of the officers and bringing his fists up at one point.

North Ridgeville Police Department shared the story on Facebook along with images of the encounter stating that "Luckily, cooler heads prevailed and Foster called it a night before it came to blows." They also reminded people that "yes, with the proper permits, you can have a kangaroo in the city."
