Three Orphaned Marsupials Takes Rescue Center’s Main Stage

Peggy, Anzac, and Cupcake were all orphaned when motor vehicle accidents claimed the lives of their mothers. It’s difficult to know their exact ages, but Australia’s Wild About Wildlife Rescue Center estimates that Peggy the Wombat and Anzac the Eastern Grey Kangaroo were 3 – 4 months old when they came into care. Cupcake the Swamp Wallaby was about 5 months of age.

The trio gets along splendidly. The rescue center’s intention is to release them to the wild when they are old enough.
