The Cullman Daily offered a few suggestions on how to capture the mischievous marsupial, appropriately named Jackie Leggs. Those suggestions? Cheese puffs and PBR. 

In fact, Blake posted a video of Jackie chomping down on the puffs.

Found!

Shortly after noon today, Jackie was found.  The Cullman Daily posted a photo on their Facebook page of the happy reunion.
