The Coffee Shop – Kangaroo Dundee

The Coffee Shop is an open thread-style discussion forum for human interest news of the day.

From BBC:

Brolga is a man with an unusual family – he is ‘mum’ to almost 30 kangaroos. From his sanctuary near Alice Springs, Australia, he cares for his brood and spends his days rescuing and raising orphan joeys.

Inside the tin shack Brolga calls home are the most recent additions to his mob, Rex and Ruby. Tiny and fragile, they need constant care, and it is up to Brolga to provide them with everything they need – food, love and even a makeshift pouch.

Following are previews of the first of three episodes of “Kangaroo Dundee;” see BBC for more information about the series.


This is an open thread. There are several hosts, each host being responsible for picking a “theme of the day” and starting the discussion. However, there is no hard and fast rule about staying on topic, especially if you have a personal story burning a hole in your pocket trying to escape.
Pictures and videos are welcome in the comments.  If photos are used, please be sure you own the copyright. We would rather see your personal photos anyway, rather than random stuff copied from the internet.  Our only request is that if you use pictures or videos, take pity on those who don’t have broadband, and don’t post more than two or three in a single comment.
