A 40-year-old woman was driving her car in Wadern, Germany, when she encountered something they never managed to cover in the driver's handbook.

According to police, a kangaroo suddenly appeared in front of her car!

Yup, in Germany – a whole continent away from the kangaroo's native Australia.

The driver naturally assumed that nobody would believe her encounter, so she quickly managed to snap a photo of the animal.

Her photo shows a small kangaroo, which may be on the younger side due to its relatively smaller size.

The driver then dutifully reported the incident to the police, who initially had trouble figuring out who the critter belonged to or how it got to Germany in the first place!

Luckily, they were able to catch the animal less than 24 hours after its escape, and the kangaroo is reportedly now back with its owner.

What would you do if you were out driving and a kangaroo jumped in front of your car?
