Comeback Jack

Just in time for Wombat Wednesday, Murray C. shares a story of a baby wombat who bounced back from tragedy. Little Jack lost his mum in a car accident in which he was badly injured. Rescuers from ACT Wildlife took him in, fixed him right up, and even introduced him to a new friend, and now Jack is healthy, happy, and loves to chew eyeglasses, as Nature intended.

More video below.

        I’m little wombat jack’s foster mum. He is doing well, almost 2 kg. For more videos on his progress go to
        Jack will be bottle fed for another year then weaned and dehumanised then released back in the wild when he’s almost 2 years old and weighing about 18 kg.
        Thanks for your interest and your kind words.

          Thank heaven for people like you, Lindy. Give the little guy a big hug and a scritch from all of us.

        I still want more, Mike. There’s not enough wombat in the world to keep me happy.

    I just want to wrap that sweet, recuperating leetle wombat, in a blankie and hug him close. Glad Little Jack was saved, found a friend and is going to be okay.

    Give a wombat a skritch and a stick to chew on… and he will melt the world.

    NTMTOM: I have an alert for you: when I click on the button to view the vid, I get a TMZ promo ad for Melissa McCarthy, and cannot get thru to see wombat pics! Very frustrating! Hmph!

    • 6rabbits April 21, 2016 / 7:48 am
