Josh White, 24, was walking his dog in The Golden Lion pub car park in Pudsey at around 9.30am when he spotted what he believed could have been a kangaroo.

The animal has a distinctive tail and appeared to be on their hind legs - with many social media users speculating the tail was in fact a twig in the distance.

However, Josh refuted this by posting more photographs showing the 'kangaroo' from a different angle.
