Langley RCMP say a wallaby has gone missing from a home on Thursday morning.
The disappearance of the mammal, which closely resembles a kangaroo, lead to a police hunt.

Despite the unusual nature of the incident, Corporal Holly Largee says nobody, including the errant marsupial, has done anything wrong.
“It is a family pet, and I actually just found out myself you’re actually allowed to have one as a pet, so.”
Largee says the six-year-old wallaby was last seen near the 22100 block of 56th Avenue.
It is a darker grey-brown colour and about three feet tall.
If anyone spots the animal, they are asked to contact Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
