Patient of the Week
This week’s Patient of the Week is Simon, a Red-Necked Wallaby from Tamborine Mountain. Simon was admitted with a fractured metatarsal bone. Unfortunately this little joey’s mum was hit by a car and killed. Luckily Simon survived the accident from the safety of his mums pouch but received the broken bone from the impact.
Now that it is warming up there is a lot more wildlife out and about and inevitably crossing roads. While many of these accidents are unfortunate and unavoidable, please slow down and keep your eye out for wildlife on the move – you may just avoid another little Simon losing its mummy.
