Black Isle Wildlife Park's escaped wallaby recaptured

A wallaby has been returned to a park in the Highlands after it escaped and was captured two days later.

The three-year-old called Joey sparked calls to the police from concerned motorists who saw the animal on roads close to the Black Isle Wildlife Park.

Park staff managed to catch the wallaby in a net and he was checked by a vet over the weekend.

He was treated for a cut to his nose inflicted during a run-in with a flock of sheep after jumping into a field.
