A kangaroo shut down a corner of Melbourne Airport on Wednesday after it hopped through the busy terminal and into a drug store, officials told local media.

The distressed animal made its way into the terminal after being injured on an approach road, Melbourne news station 3AW reported.

It then surprised customers in the pharmacy on level two of the airport, although airport spokeswoman Anna Gillett told the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper it was not clear how the animal got to the higher floor.

Police in the southeastern Australian city secured the area around the store before wildlife workers tranquilized and captured the animal, Reuters reported.

Given the name Cyrus, after one of his rescuers, the male eastern grey kangaroo was now in veterinary care, Karen Masson, the chief executive of Wildlife Victoria, told Reuters.
