A homeowner was left stunned when she saw a wallaby hopping along her snow covered street in Hereford on January 2. A shocked motorist also pulled up to watch the animal 

A stunned motorist pulls up beside the animal, which decides against going up a driveway and continues along the snow covered pavement.  

Siân later discovered the wallaby had escaped from a nearby farm by jumping over its enclosure fence and that it was caught about an hour later.

She later uploaded footage of the incredible encounter to social media where it has since gone viral, with over 26,000 views in under 24 hours.

Siân said she had only been looking out of her window to check if it had snowed and was amazed to see a wallaby far from the sunshine of its native country.

The safety, health, environment and quality advisor, said she had looked out her window to see if there had been any snow. 

She said: ‘I looked up the road and a car was just sat in the middle of the road and I was wondering what he was doing.

‘And then I just saw this thing come out of a driveway up the road and I even shouted to myself: ‘Is that a kangaroo?’

She added: ‘It wasn’t really the weather for a wallaby, a reindeer maybe, but seeing a wallaby hopping along in the snow was just really bizarre.

‘It started going down the street and I was just filming it going down the road – it was just so random.’

Siân said a couple of people trapped the animal in a driveway and managed to locate its owner.   

She said: ‘About 10 minutes away from my house there is a farm and they have got deers, emus and ostriches.

‘Apparently he has also got some wallaby’s there and it just escaped but about an hour later it was safe and back with its owner.’
