I must confess that when I posted that story about a friend of mine rescuing a baby kangaroo, I was a bit worried the wee little pinky might not make it.
Then I caught up with the same friend last week. I was delighted to hear that WIRES had called her a little while after the event with some good news. The pinky joey had survived and was doing well!
She is being cared for by a local pinky expert who raises other orphaned baby kangaroos. So she has some playmates as well!
And she now has a name. They've named her "Joanne". Joanne, the joey. Geddit? :)
I do love a good news story.
