A kangaroo was recently in.ju.red by a car in Australia, and the ca.ll.ous driver simply drove away. The animal had di.ed by the time res.cue came. However, the res.cuers noticed the tiny hand reaching out for assistance…
Melanie Fraser, an Australian res.cue worker with the Macedon Ranges Wildlife Network and Wildlife Victoria, was the first to see it.
When she opened the kangaroo’s pouch, she saw a pink infant struggling for survival. He was waving his small hand in the air, as if to say, “Help me, I’m here, and I want to survive.”
“Ants or the environment would have finally ki.ll.ed him if he had been left much longer,” Fraser told The Dodo. The small guy was christened Dawon by the woman, who took him to Christine Gilmore, a wildlife rehabilitation specialist.
He has since been given* what he requires to be fit, healthy, and powerful. Gilmore ensures that the months-old kangaroo receives lots of love and attention. “I am now his mother,” the lady claims.
Dawson also has Nelson, an orphaned kangaroo baby, to snuggle with. “Nelson is little larger than him, and they will grow and be released together,” Gilmore explained.
