Unfortunately wildlife caring can be a very heartbreaking thing to do. I had to make the awful decison to have TJ put to sleep yesterday. He was suffering a condition called 'joint ill'. He would have contracted it as a result of the stress of his mother being killed and him being left in the pouch for at least a day or maybe two before he was found. It starts as a bacterial infection that settles in the joint, usually an extremity joint such as the large toe. It causes swelling and immobility of the joint and can cause arthritis. Often it involves more than one joint. The kangaroos aren't able to hop so can't go back to the wild. He would have been an invalid and in a lot of pain. I know I made the right choice but it still breaks my heart knowing I had to do it.
