AAP logoAAP 2/08/2016

A joey has found itself in the safe arms of the law after police officers pulled it from the pouch of its mother, which had been hit by a car near Hervey Bay.

The officers were called to a traffic jam at Maryborough in southeast Queensland, where they found a severely injured kangaroo blocking the road.

After moving the marsupial, they checked her pouch and found a joey, which they named Coconut, and handed to the RSPCA.
