PASCO, Wash. (AP) — Startled drivers weren't seeing things — it really was a kangaroo hopping down the highway in Washington state.

The meandering marsupial nearly caused a couple of accidents Saturday and police responded, keeping the 'roo off the road while its owner tracked it down and caught it with help from friends.
