LebTown is featuring a different Lebanon County pet each Friday to help us enter the weekend with the best vibes possible.
This week’s pet is none other than the still-unidentified wallaby spotted wandering around Lebanon County this past week in the vicinity of Mount Zion.
This marsupial hopped into our hearts as it meandered through northern Lebanon County backyards and farmland.
Alas, what could have turned into a Homeward Bound-style odyssey came to an abrupt close as the Pennsylvania Game Commission stepped in, rescuing the animal for safekeeping and suggesting that it was unlikely in any case that the former owner of the indigenously Australian mammal had the proper ownership paperwork for their supposed companion to begin with.
Although the wallaby remains without a name, for us it simply adds to the draw of this event.
For those unfamiliar with the species, a wallaby is a mid-sized marsupial mammal belonging to the kangaroo family, Macropodidae.
Happy trails, Lebanon County wallaby. Congratulations on being named LebTown’s Pet of the Week!
