Austria Is Confused After Spotting An Animal Normally Seen Only In Australia

Austrians often lament having their European country mistaken for Australia - which is 14,000km (8,700 miles) away - and a kangaroo sighting there may complicate matters. Either way, the animal has been spotted in northern Austria, with no zoos or breeders in the area saying they've lost one.

    The animal, native to Australia, was spotted by residents in the forest and meadows near the small town of Kirchschlag in northern Austria.

    Police confirmed multiple sightings over the weekend but told the BBC on Tuesday the mystery marsupial remained at large. "It sounds unbelievable, but it's true," a local police official, who declined to be named, told the news agency AFP. "We have called all the zoos and kangaroo breeders around us, but no-one is missing a kangaroo. We hope the owner will come forward," they added.
