Authorities are now searching for the motorist who struck and killed the baby kangaroo named Lulu on Tuesday night in the town of Waukechon.
Lulu hopped away Sunday after jumping a 3-foot-tall fence her owners’ home.
The Shawano County Sheriff’s Department says the owners’ spotted Lulu along a road. They told authorities they were trying to coax the red kangaroo into coming closer to them when a truck started driving toward them.
The truck first hit one of the owners, a 69-year-old man. His injuries weren’t life-threatening. The kangaroo was struck next. The motorist drove off.
