We're not a wild life reserve by any stretch of the imagination, however it turns out it's a good space for a blind old kangaroo to come and stay.
Being blind meant Mr Roo was not in a good position to take care of himself and keep out of harms way. In fact only a couple of days prior to him stumbling onto the property he'd been spotted trying to avoid being hit by cars along the main road. Running, stumbling, into surrounding bushland and bumping into trees.
[the paddock where Mr Roo spent his time with us]
Each morning and evening I would sit with him and make sure he was ok and the children loved having a 'pet' kangaroo. I would have to approach him quietly and slowly because as a wild animal Mr Roo was not partial to humans. However by the end of his time with us he was quite used to having me sitting a few meters away.
One morning he was asleep and never woke up. We left him where he was and after he was gone daisy's popped up on the paddock and remain in his spot reminding us of his time with us.
