When its mom was hit by an automobile and killed, the future didn’t look so brilliant for a little orphaned kangaroo.That’s until it was given to Western Australian police officer Scott Mason, who has taken the little joey underneath his wing, or into his shirt, reasonably.

In a video ( originally posted to Facebook ), the little marsupial can be seen crawling into Constable Mason’s shirt, as he pronounces that the name of the 4-month old kangaroo is to be Cuejo. Not solely that, however it appears that evidently Cuejo cannot bear to be separated from his new foster “mother” as it’s then seen hopping around the police station chasing after Mason.

The tiny kangaroo was brought into the Police Station within the distant city of Cue, situated within the outback around 660 kilometers (410 miles) north east of the state’s capital, Perth. When first introduced in after being found still in the pouch of its dead mom, the poor little thing was apparently “very dehydrated and skinny.”

But since discovering its way to Mason, it now has a spring in its step. Regardless of having a newly born child with his spouse, Mason has taken on the accountability of one other toddler, which would require regular feeds every three hours or so, for the subsequent 18 months. At least Mason could have loads of practice for when the Cuejo lastly flies the nest, and Mason is back onto human child duties.
