Thought you guys would get a kick out of this a deer hunter in Oklahoma got the shock of his life when he saw a roo run past his hunting blind this week! he did manage to get the free running roo on video with his cell phone. authorities are trying to figure out where it came from since 2 possible local sources { private game farms or zoo}
at this time claim it is not one of their animals. I suppose this would be the equivalent of one of you having a Plains Buffalo come running past your hunting stand! watching this thing running[hopping?} the length of a large open field I don't see them cathing it very easy either!

Good one! No they are not easy to run down, because they do not tire easily. The action of jumping rather than running actually works their lungs, so they are never out of breath. You can come up with them if you have enough open ground, but in fenced areas they can easily clear any normal fences without breaking stride. In close up though they can be very dangerous, their best bet would be a tranquilizer gun.
Would love to have seen that guy's face.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by,
and that has made all the difference.
