Kangaroos are impressive animals. A kangaroo would be cool pet to have in Michigan. Can I legally own a kangaroo in Michigan?

I have always thought that kangaroos were fun to watch. Kangaroos are marcupials and they can hop & punch. A kangaroo could be a fun pet. If you trained your kangaroo you could open a lot of doors. What kind of doors? Perhaps income could come your way with the right kangaroo.

It would be fun to toss a stick and have my kangaroo fetch it. The hours of fun we could have as a family with our pet would be priceless. The memories we would create with "hopper" would be unmatched. How can I capitalize on my pet?

Here's an idea to create revenue. I'd like to offer a type of shuttle service to potential takers. Instead of renting a scooter on the side of the road or calling Uber you could utilize the kangaroo and buggy service. Lightweight buggies that the kangaroo could pull you in while safely getting you to your destination. The slogan would be "Why walkabout when you can hopabout?"

This sounds like a lot of fun and it could potentially be a retirement plan.

Can I legally own a kangaroo in Michigan?

According to A-Z Animals:

In Illinois, Idaho, Maine, New Jersey, New Mexico, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin it is legal to keep a kangaroo as a pet, while in the rest of the US it is completely illegal.

Well, looks like I am back to the drawing board for a new family pet and potential business endeavor.
