"Escaped wallaby caught using huge fishing net", BBC News 4/13/2012:
A wallaby that was on the loose from a fishery near the boundary between Midlothian and the Scottish Borders has been found.
The 2ft Tasmanian wallaby was caught just after midnight using a fishing net after he was spotted feeding on a 40 acre estate.
This item was sent in by Tim McDonald, who wonders "why any wallaby with the intelligence to use a fishing net should have to do so clandestinely".
The article adds:
Francis Gilhooly, owner of Leadburn Manor, told the BBC Scotland news website: "The man who sold the wallabies to us told us that wallabies hate swimming so it would be fine for us to put them on one of our three acre islands.
"However, within six hours of us buying them they were furiously swimming off the island.
"It has been a heartbreaking and traumatic time for both us and the wallabies.
