The New Scientist this week has a report about a motorist having to stop in a country lane in Wirral because there was a "Giant Rabbit" in the way. The animal hopped over the hedge and made off. The startled driver reported the incident and an investigation revealed unusual droppings. Eventually a herd of Wallabies was discovered. They had apparently escaped from Chester Zoo during bombing in WW2 and were happily ensconsed in Wirral! I assume this all happened a long time ago in the '50s or '60s
It has the smell of an urban myth to me, but I guess it is possible. Has anyone come across any local stories about this event, if it really happened.
