    Austrian police who took panicked calls about a giant beaver behaving strangely in a town centre turned up to find an escaped kangaroo.

    Police at Wiener Neustadt, Lower Austria, eventually managed to catch the animal after it hopped into a multi-storey car park in the centre of town.

    "We managed to catch the animal with the help of the local fire brigade and we also called the local vet. But at the moment we are trying to find the owner of the kangaroo as we believe it is somebody's pet," a police spokesman said.

    The marsupial was taken to an animal shelter and will stay there until its owner is found.

    Only a few months ago a kangaroo was killed in a hit-and-run accident in Upper Austria after escaping from a wildlife park at Steyr.

    Many Austrians like to sport a T-shirt saying "There are no kangaroos in Austria" when they travel abroad as so many non-Austrians confuse them with Australians.

    more aussie (australian) news

    Deicide could face being banned from having their CDs sold to minors in Australia. Attempts are being made to block their albums from being made available to children, because of violent and anti-Christian values.

    You mean it isn't? :confused:

    On the other hand, aren't all of the ones you mentioned in the EEC now? So yeah, they are the same country, aren't they? hehe.

    I hear you pesky Europeans have electricity, cars, running water, and modern sewers now too! Now I'm all confused. :D
