Wallaby left for dead after teenagers shot her miraculously becomes a mum


A WALLABY shot and left for dead by teenagers before being miraculously nursed back to health has become a MUM.

The attack was featured in a horrific video exposed by The Sun that showed her torment as a voice sneered “kill it” over laughter.

Despite tumbling to the ground the brave animal – now named Wildling – managed to limp away from the gang and was found by the authorities.

The news of her new son comes appropriately enough on Australia Day, celebrated today.

He was named Aruma, which is an Aboriginal word which means “Happy”.

Wildling was given just a 50/50 chance of survival after the brutal shooting near a children’s playground in Datchet, Berks, in August.

But now she has been nursed back to full strength at her safe home at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park, Doncaster.

A spokesman told The Sun on Sunday: “She was put with the others in early November after making a full recovery.

“She got on really well with the others and they accepted her into the group.

“Since then she was caught by one of our males and is now carrying a very young joey around about two months old.

“The joey will start to come out of the pouch around Easter time.”
