Jack the kangaroo had an early morning stop on Friday at the Animal Health Clinic, 231 E. Rich Ln., Blackfoot, where he was neutered.
Veterinarian Jason Moulton, D.V.M. said, "Because he is neutered, he won't become aggressive nor will he grow as tall [as a regular kangaroo]."
When full grown, Moulton estimates Jack will stand about five feet tall. A regular kangaroo can grow to seven and one-half feet tall.
Blackfoot School Board Chairman Scott Reese issued a statement announcing his resignation from the school board just days after startup petitions for his recall were turned into the Bingham County Clerk's office.
Reese, who represents Zone 3 in the Blackfoot School District, has been embroiled in controversy since it was revealed to the public in November that a $220,000 separation agreement was drawn up for former superintendent Scott Crane and that Idaho Open Meeting Laws were broken in the board's decision-making process.
