Kyabram Free Press

Kangaroo loves the limelight


Meet Coco the kangaroo.

The Free Press encountere­d Coco when a journalist was dispatched to cover the renovation of a small historic village at the Kyabram Fauna Park.

The journalist was surprised when their every move was shadowed by a young and rather cute Kangaroo Island kangaroo named Coco, and then increasing­ly bemused when Coco began to literally leap into every second photo.

Were the shots ruined? We think quite the opposite.

Turns out Coco was handreared and not in search of food. Released into the main park two days earlier, Coco was just lonely, loves people and was just in search of pats.

Thanks, Coco.
