The marsupial has been sighted in several places – most recently near the owner’s home in Føvling, but it has so far evaded capture.

Police have advised the public not to attempt to apprehend the animal and instead to contact the police on 114 if it is seen. “It’s not dangerous and it won’t attack, but it has sharp claws,” the officer in charge at Southern Jutland Police told TV2 News.

The animal is of the Bennett Wallaby subspecies and is about half a metre in height.
