NORWOOD, Ohio — Crikey!
A Norwood police officer making a traffic stop on Interstate 71 Wednesday night discovered the driver had a kangaroo riding in the back seat, the department posted on Facebook Thursday.
A video police posted online shows the kangaroo wrapped up in a blanket.
"Oh my gosh," the officer says in the video as the kangaroo — named Scooby Roo — pokes its head out from the blanket.
The officer cautioned the driver about properly restraining the animal.
A kangaroo is not classified as a "dangerous wild animal" under Ohio state law.
