Hope was a 6kg kangaroo that was caught in a wire fence. She had a compound fracture of one of the metatarsal bones which was pinned and splinted.
It has taken a long time for the wound to heal. Fence injury wounds are usually severe because of ischaemic damage. She adopted one of the older in care females -Ellie- as her mother is now hopping well . She will be released with her friends at a safe release site.
