Albino wallaby escaped from Solihull pen


An albino wallaby sparked a police hunt after breaking free from his West Midlands pen.

The three-year-old marsupial called Colin, who shares a field with seven other wallabies in Solihull, scaled a 6ft (1.8m) fence on Thursday night.

He spent five hours hopping around the countryside, with reported sightings over four miles away, before he returned.

His owner Angela Cloake does not expect Colin to repeat the feat.

Mrs Cloake said: "I don't think he'll have developed a wanderlust because he went and, despite being chased round the countryside by six police and my husband, he actually made his own way back."
