CAMBRIDGE SPRINGS, Pa. (AP) - If you're missing a wallaby, the Pennsylvania Game Commission wants to talk to you.

Commission officials say a wallaby - an animal resembling a small kangaroo - was captured Wednesday in Crawford County in northwestern Pennsylvania.

Eugene Morton, senior scientist emeritus at the Smithsonian Institution, told the Erie Times-News that he "broke up in laughter" when heard that someone had reported seeing such an animal.

He's more used to seeing birds than marsupials at the Hemlock Hill Biological Research Area in Rockdale Township.

But Morton said he wasn't laughing the next day when he saw the animal himself.
