MYRNA BROWN, HOST: Last Saturday a woman placed a frantic call for help in upstate New York. It seems her kangaroo had escaped!
This baby ‘roo is still too young to be outside a pouch for long. And with the cold weather, the situation felt desperate.
More than 40 volunteers fanned out across Yates County to help find the joey. A call for prayer went out. Hours of searching paid off when a sheriff’s deputy spotted her!
The volunteers surrounded the joey, and the deputy threw a blanket over the animal to capture her.

Little Kaia the kangaroo was scared, cold, and hungry. But she’s going to be okay.
REICHARD: A hoppy ending!
It’s The World and Everything in It.
