On the rampage: A psychologist was forced to leap on to her desk for safety as a hopping mad kangaroo entered her office.
AN Atherton psychologist got the fright of her life yesterday when a large kangaroo busted into her office and forced her to leap on to a desk for safety.
The 1.5m roo created more than six minutes of havoc at the office shared by psychologist Suzanne Habib and disability employment agency, Commonwealth Rehabilitation Services Australia.
But the drama did not end there.
The escaping roo bolted out of the office and nearly knocked over an elderly woman using a walking fame to make her way along Railway Lane before the frightened animal headed up Jack St.
Ms Habib said it was a huge surprise to be greeted by a kangaroo.
"Normally it’s very quiet and orderly in my office," she said.
"But it came without a referral or an appointment.
"My heart was pounding like anything.
"I don’t know where it came from or where it went."
