Wandering wallaby found in North Hopewell Twp.

The wallaby spotted in southern York County almost two weeks ago was finally found Thursday night.

North Hopewell Township Police said the wallaby, known as Rocko, was found in the 13000 block of Lebanon Church Road Thursday, Oct. 4.

The department responded to that area to assist a homeowner who found an animal in his garage. That animal, according to police, was Rocko, who had been missing for several weeks.

Rocko, a 3-year-old wallaby, escaped through fencing during recent flooding, according to a Facebook post from owner Toni Kline.

North Hopewell Township Police said Rocko is safe and was returned to his owners.
