Manar came into our care around midnight 18 months ago. She was 25 kg with a severe compound skull fracture, fractured jaw and head injury from an MVA. She was barely alive and subsequently had four operations on her skull, jaw and mouth and had antibiotics and was syringe fed for months. She had to have an infected tooth removed. Her weight fell to 17 kgs before it began to increase .
Manar required close one-on-one rehabilitation attention for 12 months. She had a liking for sweet corn and developed a friendship with one of our rescued lambs. When she sufficiently recovered she enjoyed sleeping in a hollow log in our wombat nursery enclosure.
