MELBOURNE, Australia -- A young male kangaroo triggered a partial lockdown at an airport after the wild animal managed to get inside.

Some people thought it was a promotion for Qantas.

The kangaroo was captured on cameras skidding, sliding and tumbling throughout the airport before resting in a pharmacy.

“Everyone expects bears to be walking around everywhere in Canada, and now this is going to make everyone think that there's kangaroos everywhere in Australia, even in pharmacies,"said Dorothy McKenzie.

Animal control officials blocked off the pharmacy until they could sedate the kangaroo which had some injuries to its paws.

He was transported to a veterinary clinic.
