It's hard to find something new, but this does it:

He then did what any loving pet owner would do: He put missing marsupial fliers up in the neighborhood and posted a lost pet ad on Craigslist that said "LOST KANGAROO."

The text of the ad read: "Well, he's not a kangaroo but he is my pet wallaby. … He looks just like a kangaroo but only about 2.5 ft tall and wearing a blue harness."

A day after Rachet disappeared, Champlin police called Carlson with good news: a wallaby had been spotted by a person waiting for a bus near Carlson's house.

Carlson said the caller told police, "I may need to go to a psych ward, but I think I saw a kangaroo go by."

Then, Carlson chased his wily wallaby for about 30 minutes.

"I didn't think I would ever see him again," said Carlson, who is keeping Rachet in the basement until he can secure the kennel. "He's extremely hard to catch. And when I did, I thought, 'Ahhhh, yes."'
