(CLEVELAND) — It wasn’t your average stray animal call.

The North Ridgeville Police Department in Ohio received a bizarre call Friday morning when a motorist reported seeing a kangaroo.

According to ABC News affiliate WEWS-TV, the person who made the call told police the kangaroo was “doing whatever kangaroos do” as he hopped along a road.

Police said they were able to get the 3-year-old kangaroo, named Foster, back to his owners safely.

The owners of the pet aren’t holding the kangaroo as a pet illegally either. According to police, “With the proper permits, you can have a kangaroo in the city.”
