George is a lucky kangaroo. A member of the public stopped by the side of the road in the ACT and noticed movement in the pouch of a dead female kangaroo. Following instructions over the phone the member of the public was able to reach into the pouch and safely extract George who was only 500 grams and furless( called a pinkie).
He was transported across the border into safe care in NSW away from likely death at the hands of the ACT Government(orphan kangaroo joeys are bashed or beheaded in the ACT). George is now a very affectionate adolescent who is due for release with his friends in a safe place .
