Kicker - A roo rescue

WORLD Radio - Kicker - A roo rescue

MYRNA BROWN, HOST: Last Saturday a woman placed a frantic call for help in upstate New York. It seems her kangaroo had escaped!

This baby ‘roo is still too young to be outside a pouch for long. And with the cold weather, the situation felt desperate.  

More than 40 volunteers fanned out across Yates County to help find the joey. A call for prayer went out. Hours of searching paid off when a sheriff’s deputy spotted her!

The volunteers surrounded the joey, and the deputy threw a blanket over the animal to capture her.

AUDIO: [Sound of rescue]

Little Kaia the kangaroo was scared, cold, and hungry. But she’s going to be okay. 

REICHARD: A hoppy ending!

It’s The World and Everything in It.
