A KANGAROO IS on the loose in snowy Austria, hopping his way towards dispelling a famous slogan.

‘No kangaroos in Austria’ T-shirts and souvenirs have been big-sellers for years in the alpine nation, since some people confuse Austria with Australia.

Anton the kangaroo bounded away from his owner several weeks ago and has been living rough ever since, disappearing into forested land every time someone tries to capture him.

State-run broadcaster ORF posted a photo of the Australian marsupial sitting in a snowy backyard near the town of Braunau on the border with Germany.

Anton looks fit and is expected to find enough food to survive the winter.
