A New Deer petting farm has made an appeal after a wallaby escaped from its site.
Waulkmill Menagerie has urged local residents to be on the lookout for the animal named Eddie.
It said on social media: "Keep an eye out for an escaped wallaby from Waulkmill Menagerie petting farm, New Deer.
"He was last seen hopping in New Deer village heading in the Cuminestown direction.
"He is very scared, so we will only catch him if he is enclosed somewhere."
Eddie and his brother Edward arrived at the farm on Sunday evening.
The stress of the move led to making his escape on Monday afternoon.
Anybody who sees the animal can contact the petting farm on 07983556389.
