With loss in habitat for animals becoming a stark reality with each passing day, human-animal conflicts are on a rise.

Recently, a car hit a kangaroo in Australia and then the heartless person who was responsible just left the marsupial to die and drove away. By the time the help arrived, the animal was dead. However, then the rescuers saw the tiniest hand reaching out for help…

 

Melanie Fraser, a rescue worker with Macedon Ranges Wildlife Network and Wildlife Victoria in Australia, was the first to see it. When she checked the kangaroo’s pouch, she found a pink baby fighting to survive. He was waving his tiny hand in the air as if in a struggle to survive. The entire moment was shot on tape and the video, since then has gone on to get over a lakh views.

According to the Network’s official Facebook page, Little "Dawson" was left for dead in his mothers pouch on Burke & Wills Track in Lancefield. The driver responsible continued driving leaving both the joey alive and the mother in agony. “Thankfully however a lovely man Steven, saw the mother kangaroo in trouble and called Wildlife Victoria for help. One of our rescuers attended, and this is how she found the little life that also would have been lost had no call been made,” says their Facebook page.

 

Dawson is currently doing well in care and despite his long journey ahead, he has already been paired up with another little orphan of similar size.
