Kangaroo Joey Enjoys Refreshing Water

Occurred on January 23, 2019 / Broken Hill, New South Wales, Australia

Info from Licensor: "I was fixing one of the water bores on my family property when I saw this Joey laying next to its deceased mum. We are going through a really bad drought at the moment and through summer the temperatures here are often above 46 degrees Celsius and it's killing a lot of wildlife. The joey was scared and jumped up to grab me but was too weak to kick me. I cut the end off a plastic water bottle to make a cup so I could give it a drink. In the video, it’s his 5th cup full of water. After fixing the bore, I hosed him down and then he hopped away."
