(AP) — Startled drivers weren't seeing things — it really was a kangaroo hopping down the highway in Washington state.

The meandering marsupial nearly caused a couple of accidents Saturday and police responded, keeping the 'roo off the road while its owner tracked it down and caught it with help from friends.

KNDO near Pasco, Washington reports owner lives in an area of the state where it's legal to own exotic pets. The Franklin County resident also has a zebra.
