Sleepy Grumpy Wombat
Is that a possum I see before me....NO, it is a sleepy, grumpy wombat. This wombat found a nice snug place to sleep in Cherrybrook on Tuesday 8th September.
Unfortunately the member of the public did need to use the car so with a fantastic team effort (WIRES, RSPCA, the owner of the vehicle and family and neighbours) this wombat was relocated to the bush about 1 km away on the edge of this suburban area.
Note the lovely red lidded transport container. The possum rescue basket taken to this routine 'possum' pick up was woefully inadequate!
