DALLAS (AP) - A wallaby taken from a Dallas condo last week has found a new home at the local zoo.

The Dallas Morning News (https://bit.ly/1UOqu38 ) reports that the wallaby spent some time at Dallas Animal Services after authorities were informed Wednesday that it was being kept in the cage on the condo’s balcony.

The Dallas Zoo will foster the wallaby, named Wally, until a permanent solution is found.

It’s illegal to own a wallaby without a permit in Dallas. The owner is working with the city to evaluate his options.

Zoo spokeswoman Laurie Holloway says Wally is healthy and in good shape, and doesn’t show signs of abuse or neglect. He’s being kept in a quarantine building, and the zoo will assess whether he’d be able to live with its six other wallabies.
