POUCH LOVE FOR PEPITO

Herald Sun - - NEWS -

PEPITO is peek­ing out of his ar­ti­fi­cial pouch and hop­ping his way to re­cov­ery in the arms of wildlife car­ers.

The five-month-old joey lost his mother when she was hit by a car and has been raised by Wild Paws vol­un­teer Nell Pedzik in Mount Eve­lyn ever since. Ms Pedzik said a makeshift rain­bow pouch, warm milk bot­tles and “lots of love” has raised the joey back to re­cov­ery.
