Wallabies in Inveraray

"I remember being told that when the Wildlife Park had closed some wallabies had escaped and were living in the forest just above the main road and had been spotted a few times over the years. One story that I remember is a fellow telling me that his daughter hitting one with her car one night and phoning him to come and help. He took it home put it in a box beside the fire as it looked like it was in shock- in the morning it seemed fine so he released it back into the wild."
