Baby Kangaroo And Teddy Bear Are Best Of Friends

Posted on

We probably grew up with our own favorite stuffed toy. According to this news, however, even animals love teddy bears too such as this orphaned baby kangaroo rescued by Gillian Abbott. Tim Beshara, adviser to Greens Tasmania Senator Peter Whish-Wilson, tweeted this cute photo of a baby kangaroo clutching his teddy bear tightly.

The eastern gray kangaroo named Doodlebug, was probably abandoned, or the mother may have died. Beshara told the Daily Mail, He was a couple of months old when he was passed onto my mothers wildlife company WIRES. She has since nursed it back to health and it is now hopping around the forest and coming back for the occasional feeding or cuddle. Gillian Abbot, the carer of the baby kangaroo, is the mother of Beshara.

Doodlebug takes his stuffed bear everywhere he goes. Baby kangaroos seem to respond to stuffed toys the same way as toddler would. They treat it like a good companion.
