Australia: This adorable kangaroo lives in a sack


After the loss of his mother and an attack by crows, a baby kangaroo named Andy now lives in a cloth bag at Christie Jarrett’s farmhouse near Bathst in New South Wales, where he will remain strong enough to released back into the plains.

“She had surgery and is doing very well now,” Jarrett, a longtime volunteer at the country’s largest wildlife rescue organization, WIRES (Wildlife Information Rescue and Training Service) in New South Wales, told Reuters.

The last few years have been frightening for Australian wildlife in the east of the country, following a prolonged drought and wildfires that have literally decimated many animals.

However, many of the kangaroos Jarrett cares for are not orphaned by natural disaster, but because their mothers were hit by cars and trucks.

Jarrett, who works at a local school, said she and her partner had cared for more than 200 kangaroos. Everything has been raised with great care before being released back into nature.

7-month-old Andy will be cared for for “12 months and it will take 18 months until he is ready to be released,” Jarrett said. “For now, Andy spends most of his time in the canvas bag.”

When the time comes for the kangaroos to leave, the gate is left open so that they can come and go, until they feel safe to leave forever, while some continue to visit Jarrett’s house and later.
