Injured kangaroo hops into airport pharmacy
Shop workers, Qantas staff and federal police contained the kangaroo in the pharmacy for a couple hours before wildlife officers arrived. Two rescue volunteers tranquilized the animal and took it to a vet for treatment, Wildlife Victoria said in a statement.
This isn't the first time a kangaroo has paid a visit to Melbourne Airport. Last year, a 'roo was found bouncing around one of the airport's parking garages.
