Orphaned Tick-Ridden Wombat Recovers Well and Loves His Bottle

3 years ago|75.5K views

Mullen the wombat was received by Sleepy Burrows Wombat Sanctuary’s Donna Stepan early in May, covered in tick bites and orphaned after his mother was hit by a car. Stepan was unsure whether Mullen">would survive the traumatic experience, but it seems he is thriving in her dedicated care.

“All ticks gone, drinking beautifully and settled which makes us humans happy,” she told Storyful.
