HOA lets kangaroo stay with Spring family after all
Kala Dries, 16, who has Down Syndrome, holds her 6-month out-of-pouch kangaroo named Mike at her parents home Wednesday, Feb. 29, 2012, in Spring. ( Johnny Hanson / Houston Chronicle ) The Estates of Legends Ranch HOA sent the Dries family a letter saying they are violating the deed restrictions by having the kangaroo, a non-domestic animal, at their home and to, "Please immediately remove the kangaroo from your property as it is not a household pet nor can it be maintained for business purposes." Kala's parents, Jeni and Nick Dreis, are currently in the process of creating a wildlife preserve, organic farm and education center in Conroe to serve special needs children. Mike, once large enough, will live there, Jeni said. Jeni said the center will provide holistic health for their daughter as well as a way to give special needs children a way to learn life skills.
