It's a story that made people hopping mad. A Spring family - ordered to dump their kangaroo.

The Estates of Legends Ranch Homeowners Association wasn't cool with having a marsupial in the neighborhood.  So they told the Dreis family to get rid of their pet, or else.

After the Dreis family story got out, especially the part about Mike the kangaroo being crucial to their Down Syndrome daughter's development, public backlash was so intense, the homeowners association finally backed off.  In short, Mike gets to stay!

Once the little guy's old enough, he`ll move to a therapeutic place for special need teens and adults.
