Children's Fairy Tale Comes to Life as Fox and Boar Help Kangaroos Break Out of Wildlife Park

Officials at a wildlife park near Frankfurt, Germany, are on the lookout for an escaped kangaroo believed to have been assisted in his getaway by a fox and wild boar.

According to Michael Hoffmann, assistant head of Hochwildschutzpark Hunsrück, three male kangaroos — Skippy, Jack, and Mick — made their way out of their enclosure through a hole dug by a fox that made its way into the park, no doubt to make mischief.

Two of the three bucks then exited the park grounds through a second hole made by a wild boar.

All kangaroos excepting one have been recovered. "He's super friendly, super nice," said Hoffmann of the missing animal. "Absolutely no danger at all," .
