This Orphaned Kangaroo Adopted A Cop As His New Mom

Cuteness Team

This adorable kangaroo babe had a rough start in life. He was orphaned when his mother was stuck and killed by a truck, and shortly after, fell victim to a vicious, life threatening attack from two very dangerous birds of prey. Lucky for the little joey (named Cuejoe), he was rescued by Constable Mason of the Western Australia Police — and the two have developed a very special bond. It seems Cuejoe has taken on Constable Mason as his foster mother, using the hero cop's t-shirt as a marsupial pouch! Check out the video below.

Once the little guy is recovered and ready to live life on his own, they'll release him back to the Australian wild.
