"It seems about as likely as a kangaroo breaking in."

The rogue 'roo hopped around on the parents' bed (''I was under the covers thinking this is a very big possum," says the mom) before heading to their 10-year-old son’s room. The father followed, grabbed the kangaroo by the head and feet, and dragged it outside, where it headed into a forest. "I had just my undies on. I felt vulnerable," says dad.
