North Ridgeville Police get animal calls. A lot of animal calls. Usually dogs. Every now and then a horse. They had a potbellied pig rooting through a flower bed once.
At 5 a.m. on Novl 27, a motorist was driving down the road and a kangaroo (yes, a kangaroo) was doing whatever kangaroos do in the middle of Lorain Rd. near Stonebriar.
Police learn a lot of things at the academy. But responding to a call like this isn’t one of them.
Sgt. Corey Sabo, Ptlm. John Metzo, and Ptlm Brad Parker all responded and were able to get the kangaroo, named “Foster” (Get it?? Awesome), back to his pen on Island Road, though it appears that he wanted to box Ptlm Metzo before going back in the second picture. Luckily, cooler heads prevailed and Foster called it a night before it came to blows.
