Footage Shows Wallaby Fleeing Cars on Sydney Harbour Bridge

A swamp wallaby was filmed fleeing cars after it made its way on to the Sydney Harbour Bridge on Tuesday, January 16.

The male marsupial was eventually rescued on Macquarie Street by former rugby union captain Nick Farr-Jones after it successfully evaded police on the bridge. It was taken to Taronga Zoo.

On its Facebook page the zoo quoted senior veterinarian Larry Vogelnest as saying the swamp wallaby was in stable condition. "At this stage, it doesn’t appear to have any serious injuries, however, it will be carefully assessed over the next 24–48 hours. As with all wildlife brought into our care, our hope is that the wallaby will be able to be released back into the wild.
