A Kangaroo is making downtown Adelaide, Australia hopping amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Australia’s Coronavirus lockdown requires residents to stay at home except for essential outings, including buying groceries or seeking medical care. Gatherings are limited to two people in public areas.
But street cameras caught some lockdown lawbreakers taking advantage of the apocalyptic scene, as they captured kangaroos bouncing through the deserted streets of the South Australian city.

“Protective Security Officers tracked a suspect wearing a grey fur coat hopping through the heart of the #adelaide CBD this morning,” police in the city of more than 1.2 million people joked in a tweet about the meandering marsupial.
“He was last seen on foot heading into the West Parklands,”
