Roo jumps into Vic couple's bed

A Victorian couple was stunned to find a furry intruder land on their bed after a kangaroo crashed through their window.

Bill and Norma McConnell were enjoying a Sunday morning lie-in when a flying kangaroo bounced onto their bed.

"It's obviously had the momentum to jump through the window and virtually land on top of Norma, only a few feet from her face" Mr McConnell told 3AW radio.

The roo kept going, bounding off the bed, through the bedroom door and down the passageway.

"It took a while to realise it was in fact a kangaroo" Mr McConnell said.

He gave chase, watching the marsupial bang into furniture as it tried to escape out closed windows.

"I picked up a chair, like a lion tamer, to protect myself just in case" Mr McConnnell told AAP.

"It then hit the TV...and then it just sat behind a chair".

Gathering its bearings, the roo then found the back door open and skipped off into the morning light, sailing over a six foot fence on its way.

"I am just lucky we weren't hurt" Mr McConnell told AAP.
