A lovable photo showing Doodlebug, an orphaned kangaroo cuddling a teddy bear it had actually received from its caretaker mother.
The heart-warming image, that was tweeted by Tim Beshara, went viral around the world.
” I figured it would certainly be cooperated Australia but I’ve been stunned to see the photo reaching as far as Brazil and Russia. I’ve even had American morning shows using it on air.”
The photo was taken on the property of Doodlebugs wildlife caretaker in New South Wales, she found that orphaned animals reacted well to teddy bears.
” They appear to react to the toys much in the same way as a toddler. They treat it as a companion.”
Tim Beshara and his mom Gillian have actually taken care of Doodlebug since he was abandoned as a baby, speaking on this, she claimed:
” He might have fallen out of his mother’s pouch or his mom may have passed away. He was a number of months old when he was passed onto my mom’s wild animals company WIRES.”
The young kangaroo has made a complete recovery from the poor state he remained in when adopted and is now back out in the wild.
” She has since nursed it back to health and it is currently hopping around the woodland and coming back for the occasional feeding or cuddle, as the image shows.”
