#AtoZChallenge – Wallaby

A wallaby is a small to mid-sized member of the kangaroo clan. Like their cousin, the kangaroo, wallabies are marsupials and carry their young, also called joeys, in their pouches.

In 2008, Wendell, a wallaby from Saunders Country Critters zoo escaped and “Where’s Wendell” fever took over and sightings of the wayward wallaby were reported throughout Eastern Ontario and Quebec. Sadly, this story didn’t have a happy ending, and Wendell was found dead a few short miles from his home.
