A red-necked wallaby has got the jump on those looking to catch him after he hopped it from his enclosure in Wagrain in Pongau in Salzburg province.
Chicken farmer Daniel Kofler who owns the male wallaby said that he hopes the animal will come back under its own steam when it gets hungry .
He said: "There may still just be enough grass for him to eat but that's going to vanish as soon as the snow starts to fall soon. I'm hoping then that he will find his own way back home."
There were also two female wallabies in the enclosure that they decided to stay put and only the male called Skipper decided to hop it. It is believed he is currently in a nearby wood and local hunters have been warned to try and avoid shooting the animal.
The animal normally eats grass, nuts and hay and is not regarded as a danger to the public.
