(KSL News) -- A kangaroo that didn't want to board its flight had workers jumping tonight at Salt Lake International Airport.

There's no word on where the kangaroo came from or where it's going, but the poodle-sized 'roo was being transported when the latch on its cage sprung open and it hopped out and into the open.

The kangaroo scratched an airport worker before it was caught.

An airport manager tells us, "We're gonna make sure that latch has a whole lotta duct tape around it now."
