Woman Stops To Save An Orphaned Kangaroo On The Side Of The Road
Facebook/Chloe Tiffany Enright Chloe Enright was on her way home with her kids after visiting a friend in Dunsborough, Western Australia, when they passed a dead kangaroo on the side of the road. She writes on Facebook that a feeling made her go back and check on the animal.
Thank goodness she did, because inside the kangaroos pouch was a baby joey who would never have survived without help.
After gently removing the little guy, she and her children took the joey to the vet for some much needed milk. They then visited For Australian Wildlife Needing Aid (FAWNA), a wildlife rescue group, to collect a heated pouch and other items needed to look after the joey.
Enright spoke to Daily Mail Australia, saying the little survivor was healing quickly with the help of her children.
‘My daughter Lilly wants to name her Angel because she says the angels brought her to us,’ she said.
The little joey is getting round the clock care until it reaches 18 months and can be weaned off of her bottle. Enright is urging motorists to stop and check if they spot a struck kangaroo, as it may have a joey who will not survive without help.
The hope is that little ‘Angel’ will eventually be released back into the wild.
