The employees were from the animal shelter that the animal Wednesday morning in a network could attract on a site on the oudenaardse steenweg in Kruishoutem. “We knew all week that the wallaby is going to be in that area ceased. Someone from the nearby police had already informed. Then we have the whole week every day, watching and also food going to the small kangaroo there to keep and at ease. And this morning we saw our chance to the animal to catch. We have a net was stretched, and the wallaby is there to attract,” says Jurgen Naert of Folyfoot.Male of a year and a half
The caught wallaby is a male of an estimated one and a half years old. “The animal may now for a while with us at the asylum continue to unwind. We ask everyone to explicitly order him not to come visit. It can now also not be the intention, that, a attraction will make of it. The animal sets it very well, but has need rest,” stresses Jurgen.no owner surfaced
“It is, of course, a mystery how this animal in Kruisem is ended. We have already still no notification received from somebody that wallaby is lost. I regret that in our country no more stringent legislation on the keeping of such animals. We are catching this kangaroo not to our advantage: it is already the fifth in five years time,” says Jurgen.
it has the new guest of the asylum Skippy called. “But it is not the intention that the animal stays here. After he has calmed down, he will move to Etikhove. There lives someone who, for us, all kinds of exotic animals, has collected and that they are also excellent care. It is intended that Skippy to the end of his days at that great animal lover can stay,” says Naert.at Least four month wandered
Kruisem is for weeks in the ban of the wallaby. Over the last few weeks was the animal three times already spotted in the vicinity of the Spring and the Anzegemsesteenweg. Then police had a call launched to look out to the exot. And apparently it was much longer in the community than when it was thought: last week, I went into images of the animal, which already were made in October of last year.
