Meet Buster, a Pet Kangaroo Who Broke Free on Staten Island Yesterday

Kangaroos are not a sight normally seen in New York, but yesterday morning, several Staten Islanders were treated to a 4-foot-tall Joey hopping around down under the Verrazano Bridge.

A marsupial named Buster was busted around 8 a.m. after slipping through an unlocked gate in a 6-foot-high fence and happily hopping through Staten Island, according to cops and witnesses.

Buster eventually was captured and made it back home safe and sound.
