A wallaby is on the loose in Erie, Illinois and the owner needs your help in returning him home. Alexis Smith says that Blu escaped her backyard after her dog dug a hole under the fence.

People in Erie have seen Blu around town since his escape. “He was actually seen behind the Casey’s," said Alexis. "He’s made his way four miles outside of town and come all the way back in."

Blu was purchased by Alexis a year ago, he was only a few weeks old at the time. Vintage Radio in Erie is helping the efforts to find the wallaby by offering up a $525 reward for whoever finds Blu.

If you see Blu, call Alexis Smith at 309-738-7730. She says not to chase him or he will run off again and he should respond to his name. There is also a Facebook page set up, Bring Blu Home.
