Why a kangaroo stopped traffic at the Kippa Ring north of Brisbane

The traffic was stopped at a busy intersection after a kangaroo in search of love jumped along with a green traffic light arrow.

The eastern gray made a right turn during the morning rush hour and bounced from Anzac to Elizabeth Avenue on the Kippa Ring, north of Brisbane.

The spring breeding season means that more male kangaroos are looking for love – sometimes in dangerous places.

Kim Werner, who lives on the Redcliffe peninsula, took the video from his car when a man on the radio uttered a typical Australian sentence about happiness.

& # 39; I understand that we are a happy country, & # 39; said the voice.

The kangaroo itself was not so lucky after being caught in traffic on Thursday and struggling to stay in its lane.

Mr. Werner's wife, Maree Brown, said the kangaroo had been in a stressful situation.

& # 39; That crossing is the busiest on the peninsula, & # 39; she told Daily Mail Australia on Friday.

Other residents saw the kangaroo skipping through nearby streets, with a man who saw him outside a mechanical workshop for cars after the marsupial had used the pedestrian crossing in a side street.

After eight hours of confusion, he landed in an industrial area in the neighboring suburb of Moreton Bay in Clontarf.

The RSPCA was called to calm the kangaroo after it got stuck behind an inverted workbench and various containers.

Veterinarians spent more than two hours releasing the marsupial, slightly anesthetizing him so that he could wake up earlier, confirmed the spokesman for the Queensland branch Michael Beatty.

Fortunately, he was not injured and was able to jump with both feet despite the trial at the end of the afternoon.

Mrs. Brown said that recent development activities in nearby Beachmere, Newport, and Bribie Island had replaced Bushland with houses, causing kangaroos to venture into the suburbs.

Several locals also blamed the destruction of the habitat for bringing kangaroos closer to built-up areas.

& # 39; The municipality is not concerned with wildlife, & # 39; said Jean Loyden to the Facebook group of The Redcliffe Peninsula.

Another woman, Ruth Evans, agreed that over-development was to blame.

& # 39; It is despicable that Moreton Bay municipality does not care about its nature, & # 39; she said.

How did a kangaroo get into trouble?

8.28 am: filmed hopping from Anzac Avenue junction at Kippa Ring

After 9 am: he was spotted outside in nearby Clontarf outside a workshop for car mechanics

4:00 PM: RSPCA veterinarians go to an industrial company in Clontarf and quiet the marsupials

6.20 pm: the kangaroo is released unharmed and can jump on both legs

& # 39; Why don't they set up good reserves for these animals, koalas, and kangaroos so that they can coexist with us?

& # 39; It will not be long before kangaroos and koalas become extinct. & # 39;

The Moreton Bay Regional Council rejected the suggestions it had failed to take into account the welfare of marsupials when approving developments.

& # 39; New proposed environmental development is always assessed by municipal environmental planners to balance the needs of growth with the need to protect and preserve biodiversity & # 39 ;, a spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia.

& # 39; Development is assessed based on the municipality's planning schedule and environmental legislation for state planning. & # 39;

The municipality has also placed 30 nature signs that warn motorists to look for marsupials.

Since 2012 it has also installed new fences and installed corridors for wild animals.

Alderman Denise Sims, who manages the environmental portfolio, said male kangaroos were marching during the breeding season.

& # 39; We also need drivers to do their bit, which means that we have to slow down and monitor early morning and dusk in these areas, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; I think he cut that car. You can't turn right from that lane, & said Jason Douglass.

& # 39; They make everyone jump on our roads. Disappointed. & # 39;
