Praise Rescuers for Saving Kangaroo Trapped in Mine Shaft

Kangaroo Manfred Zabinskas

Target: Rob Gell, President of Wildlife Victoria

Goal: Thank Wildlife Victoria for saving a kangaroo trapped in a mine shaft.

A couple was exploring some woods in Australia when they came across an old mine shaft. When the two looked down the shaft, they found a trapped kangaroo. The couple called Wildlife Victoria and rescuers came to the scene.

Once Wildlife Victoria arrived, they realized that it would not be an easy rescue. Thankfully, one brave rescuer had rock climbing experience and was able to lower himself into the hole. He was able to grab the kangaroo and bring him to a nearby wildlife shelter. Once the kangaroo was checked out and given food and water, he was all cleared and released back into the wild.

Sign this petition and thank Wildlife Victoria for going above and beyond to save this kangaroo. Without them, the kangaroo would’ve died.


Dear Mr. Gell,

Recently, your organization received a call regarding a kangaroo that was stuck in an old mine shaft. Rescuers quickly came to the scene and assessed the situation.

It was going to be a tricky and dangerous rescue, but that didn’t stop your employees. One rescuer with rock climbing experience lowered himself into the hole. He was able to reach the kangaroo and bring him to safety. Once all of the kangaroo’s vitals were checked and he was given food and water, he was released back into the wild.

Without your organization, this kangaroo would’ve died. Thank you and your entire organization for going above and beyond to not only save this kangaroo, but countless other animals.
