Last night, Rupert, joey of Rowena the toy kangaroo, was badly mauled and mutilated.
By the time we found him, he had severe facial trauma and half an ear missing. My plastic surgery skills weren’t up to the task, so unfortunately, we had to pronounce Rupert dead.
There were tears from a very sad 10-year-old. Not to mention the bereft mother, Rowena, and her empty pouch.
