Pair Of Wallabies Take A Walkabout, But Not Down Under

VIENNA (April 18, 2013)--Volunteers were searching for a third day Thursday for a pair of wallabies that are evidently on a walkabout through Austria.

The kangaroo-like marsupials, which are smaller than kangaroos and primarily found in Australia, escaped from a farm in the Upper Austrian countryside, about 110 miles northwest of Vienna.

There are actually three wallabies on the loose because owner Gabrielle Schrammel says the female has a joey in her pouch.

Austrians often express irritation at being confused for Australians while abroad, and mail meant for Australia occasionally surfaces in this central European Alpine country.
