Man attempted to sell kangaroo on Facebook.

A 6-month-old kangaroo is finally safe after the exotic animal was almost sold online in Pennsylvania for thousands of dollars.

Officials rescued the animal after receiving a tip about a kangaroo listing on Facebook. The illegal animal was being sold for $5,000.

It was found wrapped in a blanket, and stashed inside a closet of Adams County home, according to a post by the Pennsylvania Game Commission.


The baby kangaroo was seized, and will now be cared for at a "properly licensed facility."

Officials have yet to identify the suspect, and no arrests have been announced.
