Orphaned kangaroo adopts hunky Aussie cop as its mother

When a baby kangaroo’s mother was struck and killed by a truck, the orphaned animal was handed over to police in Cue, a small town in Western Australia.

Constable Scott Mason began taking care of the animal, and now the two are inseparable.

The police department posted on Twitter that the kangaroo has been named Cujoe.

The Western Australia Police posted an adorable video of Mason with Cujoe, in which the animal can be seen climbing inside the officer’s shirt.

According to the Huffington Post, the kangaroo will need to be fed every three hours and will be like a second child to Mason, who is a new father himself.

Mason hopes to open up a wildlife rescue center in the future.
