Newton’s Wallaby Takes In Sights of Las Vegas

From Times Wire Reports

Wayne Newton’s wallaby escaped from the performer’s home, leading police, animal control officers and an urban cowboy on a two-mile chase through south Las Vegas.

The female adult wallaby, a marsupial with clawed fingers and powerful legs, first surfaced about 6:30 a.m. near Newton’s walled compound. An animal control officer snared the wallaby, which was returned unharmed to Newton.
