Missing wallaby reunited with owners in Monee

MONEE, Ill. — A wallaby named Rupert was reunited with his owners after going missing this week, according to the pet’s owner.

Rupert’s owner, Josie Hange, said the search ended Saturday after Rupert was found a few miles from his home in Monee.

The 2-year-old wallaby disappeared from the Hange family’s garden on Tuesday evening.

According to Hange, Rupert was in very good condition when he was found and had no cuts or bruises.

Will County animal control officials notified Monee residents about the wallaby on the loose Thursday and asked the public to be on the lookout and document areas where it has been spotted.

The family has a license for the animal and it is registered with the county.
