Digger is a baby wombat. He’sonly a few months old and weighsabout one pound. He’s also very lucky to be alive.
On a cold evening in April, a man noticed a dead wombat lying on the side of the road. He pulled over and got out of his vehicle, intending on moving the dead female over to prevent anyone else from seeing her and swerving.
The man was shocked to see a little pink creature lying next to her. It was moving. The kind man removed his shirt and wrapped up the tiny baby wombat.
Unsure if the baby wombat would survive, Milligan did everything she could to help Digger recover. Max, an orphaned kangaroo that lives with Milligan stood close by, curious about the newcreature in his home.
