Orphaned kangaroo earns celebrity status

  • 15/06/2016

A baby kangaroo rescued in Western Australia has become a local celebrity after it was adopted by a police officer.

The joey was orphaned when its mother was killed by a truck.

Const Scott Mason adopted the four-month-old and hand-feeds him every three hours.

The pair go everywhere together, from school meetings to shopping, and even the gym.

But when the kangaroo is ready, he'll be released back into the wild.
