A fireman rescued a kangaroo joey that was trying to save itself from a raging bushfire by taking shelter under a tree trunk

February 07, 2020 • By Shirley Marie Bradby

In Australia, huge bushfires are wreaking havoc on the land and killing millions of animals.

Considering that Australia is made up of six states and in each of them there is at least one large bushfire, one can well understand the seriousness of the situation.

The worst affected state is perhaps that of New South Wales, where there are currently more active bushfires.

And it is exactly there where a young volunteer fireman—and model—Sam McGlone managed to save a "joey" (a baby kangaroo) that had tried to save itself from a bushfire by hiding under a tree trunk.

The images that the young volunteer firefighter has shared on social platforms has touched the hearts of everyone who has seen them! 

Fortunately, this little joey and Sam were lucky enough to meet just in time!

Sam McGlone is an Instagram influencer star and his page is followed by over 130 thousand people!

But he is also a voluntary fireman who is working hard every day in New South Wales to reduce, control, and extinguish the bushfires that are devastating the territory.

While he was trying to put out a bushfire near his hometown of Braidwood, New South Wales, the 24-year-old Australian noticed something moving under a fallen tree trunk!

Under that tree trunk, there was a young female kangaroo joey, alone and afraid that was trying to protect itself from the flames!

Sam did not think twice about rescuing that little kangaroo joey and carrying her away from the flames to safety.

You can watch a video of the rescue, where Sam himself invites as many people as possible to make donations to organizations that find themselves fighting the terrible fires.


The little kangaroo was immediately wrapped in a soft towel and the volunteers proceeded to give him a drink of water from the cap of a water bottle.

There was a little kangaroo joey under that smoldering tree trunk!


The fires in Australia are estimated to have already exterminated 500 million animals and some species are inevitably in danger of becoming extinct.

We need to do something now to help stem the damage. Sam McGlone has launched a fundraising campaign on Go Fund Me, with which he has already collected many donations to provide food and water to wild animals that have managed to survive.

Here is another video that shows how and for what the GoFundMe money is being used in New South Wales to save and feed as many animals as possible.
