Wildlife are NOT pets and should never be treated as such. This is so wrong. Wallaby joeys should never be bathed like this. This photo is of a Wallaby in the care of a Registered Wildlife Sanctuary. The Wildlife Rehabilitation Licensing Body in Western Australia (Dept of Environment and Conservation) should take away this carers License. At this stage many many complaints have been made to DEC over the last couple of years and they refuse to do anything. DEC also refuse to protect wildlife from terrible husbandry & care by this carer. Doesn’t or orphaned, sick & injured Wildlife deserve the BEST care?

This tiny pinkie wallaby joey was given Intravenous fluids by sub-cutanious injection, by a long term carer (30 plus years).
An infection developed and Vets had to put a drain tube in.
I am not sure what caused the infection – “re-used” or contaminated IV solution. Some carers, to save money take very risky action and don’t make sure that everything used in brand new & professionally sterilised in sealed packages. That the IV solution port is wiped with a alcohol wipe prior to a needle being inserted ever time. That syringes, needles ect are never reused.

Rodger Eastern Grey Kangaroo joey raised by Members of the public for 6 months. This is up at Aust Zoo Wildlife Hospital within hours of me getting him. He was NOT “toileted” and urinated & defecated in pouch & then slept in it for hours. His testicle were red raw & bleeding he had ‘bed’ sores all over, his fur was ‘dredlock’ & matted. He was put in filtered sun shine daily, never hopped around, wasn’t given dirt, grass & roots to eat. He was unable to stand up because he was so weak. He was euthanased. Then I made cruelty report and after lots of pressure from me, the couple where found guilty & fined $500 each.
I had reported the abuse to Parks and Wildlife but they refused to take any action.
