How Do You Roo?

The Punisher, Relaxing in His New Home

We were all very sad when we learned that the parents of one of our star patients, The Punisher (affectionately known as TP) were relocating down to Australia earlier this year. TP’s dad took a job on Curtis Island, which means that his parents packed up and headed Down Under to open up a new chapter in their lives. TP has stayed behind in the US, but his mom keeps in contact via Skype and Facebook. TP’s mom Jennifer has found some new friends who work in wildlife rescue, and she sent us some awesome pictures of some of her new companions. It is not uncommon in Jennifer’s circle to rescue baby kangaroos, many of whom became orphaned when their mothers were hit by cars. Jennifer herself is looking to foster a brushtail possum, as ‘roos require a lot of land and a long-term time commitment of over a year. Please enjoy some of Jennifer’s pictures, and we look forward to staying in touch as their Australian adventures unfold!
