Just before Christmas Steve and Rosemary were called to rescue a huge kangaroo that had been hit by a vehicle near Queanbeyan. Max must have been 75kg and 2 metres tall. His injuries included a fractured cheek, fractured upper palate, head injury and severe concussion. His jaw was intact.
The rescue was undertaken around midnight and Max was brought back to the Possumwood Recovery Centre for treatment and recovery. As Max continued to improve he became increasingly difficult to medicate.
After two months Max had made a full recovery and was taken to the pre-release site prior to final release where he will have no difficulty negotiating traffic as there is none.
Max should have a long and happy life at his new home.
