Cop Becomes ‘Mom’ To Orphaned Baby Kangaroo After Rescuing Him

An orphaned baby kangaroo is winning the hearts of the Internet after a video of the joey hopping head-first inside a cop’s tshirt was posted online.

The 4-month-old joey named Cujoe was orphaned after his mother was killed in Western Australia.

He was pulled from his mother’s pouch and handed over to police in the small town of Cue, several hundred miles northeast of Perth.
