Workers were left hopping mad when they discovered a kangaroo trapped inside an Adelaide warehouse.
Staff turned up on Friday morning to discover the lost marsupial in the Richmond office with a joey in its pouch.
“I wasn’t expecting it, that’s for sure,” Warehouse Manager Andrew Hargreraves told Nine News.
“You know, it’s the sort of thing you see on the news which... here we are.”
Mr Hargreaves had been helping a customer and had popped out the back to grab their order when he came face-to-face with the confused roo.
She then followed him into the showroom and made herself at home in the office.
“I just thought, what is going on here? You know, where would this thing have come from?”
While Mr Hargreaves made sure she had some water and bread to eat, while Fauna Rescue was called in to help.
After getting a few kicks in, rescuers were able to move the kangaroo into a carrier bag.
Explaining the initial defensive behaviour, rescuer Simon Adamcyzk told Nine News that roos often get quite defensive when cornered in that situation.
It’s believed the kangaroo had become lost and was looking for food when she made her way into the city from nearby bushland.
The mother and joey were later released in scrubland at the top of Greenhill Road.
