Shock After Kangaroo Joey Found Stuffed Inside Australian Post Box

Shock After Kangaroo Joey Found Stuffed Inside Australian Post Box

Australian firefighters have been shocked after responding to a bizarre call in Queensland.

Officers arrived at the scene in Woongoolba on the Gold Coast to help rescue an animal stuck inside a post box.

It appears someone (obviously not a kangaroo) had stuffed a joey inside the tiny box and left them to die amongst people's mail.

Pimpama Fire and Rescue Service jumped on the call and were able to save the baby animal from what would have been certain death.

Writing on Facebook, the local Fire and Rescue team said: "A quick response from our crew, as well as Australia Post with the post box keys, meant the joey was out in no time. Pleased to report our furry friend is in the hands of wildlife carers."

The animal has been transferred to wildlife carers who will check to see the joey is all okay.

It's unclear whether an investigation will be carried out to see who was behind this ridiculous incident.

Australian Authorities Launch Investigation After Eight Puppies Were Found Dumped In Bin

published at2 months ago

RSPCA Queensland's Michael Beatty says many of the roos are often left to suffer in pain and eventually die from their injuries - which can be a slow and brutal death.

Mr Beatty has told Yahoo Australia: "We've had kangaroos and wallabies hopping around and sometimes it can take two weeks for them to be caught.

"It's not like an episode of Game of Thrones, these animals aren't killed immediately at all. They tend to be shot in the leg or just somewhere where it's going to linger and then the wound festers.

"Eventually they die from blood poisoning or infection."

Authorities are asking anyone with information about this callous attack or any others that have popped up in Queensland to contact them.
