I'm glad the kangeroo is OK - or we pray he will be OK, and there was people there who were willing to take a chance on him.

This makes me think even more about our "disposable" society and the problems it creates for wildlife and the environment. Whoever came up with the phrase "reduce, reuse, recycle" had it right. "Live simply so others can simply live" is another good one. Fortunately this kangaroo received help before it was too late!
