Wallaby mystery in Pukerua Bay

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:28 pm on 10 December 2010

There's a mystery afoot in Pukerua Bay. A dead wallaby has been found in a residential neighborhood, a log hop away from any of the known populations of wallabies in New Zealand. Determined to solve the wallaby mystery, one woman contacted the Wellington Zoo and local vet clinics to see if anyone is missing a marsupial with no luck. The animal has been buried in a local resident's garden, but biosecurity officials would still like to know how it got to Pukerua in the first place.
