A video of an attempted rescue of a kangaroo is the latest source of laughter on the Internet. On Wednesday morning, residents of Canberra reportedly spotted a young marsupial paddling around Lake Burley-Griffin. Soon, the authorities were called in to rescue the animal from the water.
The video details the incident that happened after the police managed to bring the kangaroo out of the water. It shows two police on a jetski bringing the animal back on a pavement beside the lake. As soon as they drop the kangaroo, it instantly jumps back into the lake and swims away - leaving the policemen to exasperatedly turn back their vehicle to catch the animal again.

What did they expect? the roo to just be fine with being put out in the open like that after being chased and captured? Of course the roo would go back into the water.— Alex Barker (@burningfyra) October 18, 2019
The policemen eventually managed to catch the animal and handed them over to the rescue works, reports The Canberra Times. However, it managed to get out of their grip and run away – again.
