These heartbreaking photos show the moment a kangaroo begs for help in the aftermath of the devastating Australian bushfires. The marsupial suffered huge burns to its body before a teenager drenched it with water and gave it a drink. The stricken animal is one of billions caught up in Australia’s worst bushfires, which continue to burn out of control across an area more than a third of the size of England.

Billions of animals?

Is that right?

Whatever the number, what a shame.

How much brush reduction is being done in Australia, or do their government officials and their natural resource managers have the “California” mindset when it comes to dealing with these seasonal fires over there?

Tugging the heart strings to promote the climate cult.

Sad; very sad.
Like CA, brush reduction by Dept Interior/Forestry was eliminated to funnel monies into social programs, and these fires rage, uncontrollable, with huge losses of humans’ and animals’ lives, not to mention homes and habitats.

So we tanned his hide when he died, Clyde,
and that’s it hanging on the shed.
All together now!

I like a good joke, and I like dark humor as much as anyone.

But I can’t see anything to laugh about here. It’s tragic all around.

And no, it’s nothing to do with climate change, but the media is lapping this up, no doubt as proof of it.

Last report I saw was 500 million. With a photo of a koala getting water from person on a bicycle. My question, still not so bad that out for a bike ride isn't unpleasant?😲🌋🐨🚲

I don’t know much about Kangaroos, but the one in pic reminded me of my dogs...Very sad story. Like in the past in Cali, I feel for the people and animals being affected by the fires.
