Wallaby spotted in Hereford during heavy snowfall

Recommended Posts

A Wallaby was spotted hoping around during the snowfall last night in Breinton Hereford.

Our friend and local resident Crispin Abel got in touch and said he could not believe his eyes and wrote on his Facebook page; 


2021 has already surprised me. I drove my son to work this evening. Things to expect. Snow yes, ice yes, slush yes, Wallaby nope.

As I drove along Breinton Road, I saw a figure in a gateway. 30 metres later, I stopped the car. My brain registered a small kangaroo shape. I asked, "Did you see a kangaroo back there?" Following a brief discussion, we decided it was a wallaby. I reversed back and saw the wallaby hopping down the road. I then phoned West Mercia Police, because.....well. The call went as expected....."I would like to report that there is a wallaby loose on Breinton Road." (Silence......) ,"Pardon!". "Yes, there is a small, Australian, marsupial hopping down Breinton Road, Hereford.

So, if this is how 2021 is going to start, who knows what surreal things are going to happen next!
