Kangaroo dies stuck in a drain

THERE was no happy ending for a kangaroo stuck in a drain at Junction Hill yesterday.

Grafton Fire Brigade, WIRES and Clarence Valley Council personnel all tried their best to get the animal out, but soon after midday it became apparent the creature had died.

Grafton Fire Brigade station commander Mick Kearns said it was unfortunate, but it would have been irresponsible to allow any of his men to climb into the drain to rescue the roo.

A neighbour, Tom Ensby, said the kangaroo could have been in there for two days. He suspected it was chased up the drain by dogs from nearby houses.

WIRES worker Joan O'Shea said she had heard the kangaroo breathing that morning, but it would have been stressed.
