And, the next thing you knew, the joey was hopping its way down the highway.

The Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department responded to a call around 7 a.m. from a tipster who saw the animal on Highway L in Somers, in the southeast part of the state.

Sheriff’s deputies rounded up the joey in no time and soon realized it belonged to Jerry Smith’s pumpkin farm, blocks away.

Officials say the kangaroo was returned to the patch safely and without injury.
