"Lulu" (The Pet Kangaroo) Saves Farmer's Life
:bounce: LULU!!! :bounce:

<snip>

MELBOURNE, Australia -- An unlikely hero hopped onto the scene when a farmer suffered serious head injuries after being hit by a falling branch.

The hero? A partially blind pet kangaroo.

The eastern gray kangaroo, Lulu, stood guard over Len Richards' unconscious body Sunday and "barked like a dog" to get help, the farmer's daughter said.

"She was obviously trying to get our attention because she never acts like that," said Celeste Richards, 17.

"It went on for about 15 minutes, so we went outside to investigate and we saw Lulu standing upright with her chest puffed out over Dad's body. If it wasn't for her, my Dad could have died -- Lulu is my hero," she added.
