BEAVER DAM, Wis. (AP) - A Beaver Dam police officer says he’s certain he’s never responded to a call like the one he handled recently at a McDonald’s restaurant.

Officer Rich Dahl responded to an anonymous complaint from a customer about a woman who brought a kangaroo into McDonald’s. Dahl said Tuesday the woman had the baby kangaroo wrapped in a blanket and tucked in an infant car seat.

Dahl says when he confronted the woman she explained the kangaroo was a service animal to help her cope with emotional distress and she produced a letter from a doctor.

The officer says the woman was upset at first, but then agreed to leave the restaurant.

McDonald’s says its policy is to make its restaurants accessible to all customers, including those with disabilities and special needs.
