Both Dani and Amy found that this poor kangaroo actually had a build-up of tree sap, sticks and bark stuck to her fur. It was very close to her skin and required sharp scissors and an electric razor to remove all of the mess. It’s only fitting that her rescuers called her Sappy.
Thankfully Sappy didn’t have any serious injuries and she was able to wake up and go about her business, sap and stick-free!
Our Animal Ambulance team love kangaroo jobs that have a happy ending. Even though Sappy may be sporting a bald patch now, she is back to living her best life in the wild.
