I’ll just stay quite still and no one will notice me
A kangaroo is for the high jump after escaping from its owner and going on a knicker-nicking spree.
Benji bounced from garden to garden collecting ladies’ lingerie as it went. The two-year-old marsupial was only caught when one victim looked out of her kitchen window and saw it hopping it with her undies.
A spokesman for the police in Prague, Czech Republic, explained: “We had a call from the kangaroo’s owner saying it had escaped. At the same time, we started getting reports of a number of thefts from washing lines.”
He added: “We didn’t think they could possibly be related until the animal was caught red-handed.”
Benji’s owner Petr Hlabovic, 35, said: “I’m very relieved to have him back. I’ve got no idea what he thought he was up to – he certainly didn’t pick up the habit from me.”
That’s what they all say.
