Baby wombat saved from dead mum's pouch in Australia

A baby wombat that was found in its dead mother's pouch by the roadside in Australia is receiving 24-hour care.

Jodie Bradshaw, who runs Free Hearts Animal Sanctuary in Tasmania state, stopped to check the dead female wombat by the side of the road.

She realised there was a live wombat joey inside.

A local wildlife expert named Norma Baker is now caring for the tiny wombat, keeping it inside her bra, to maintain its body temperature.
