the sad thing is that the farmer probably killed its mother. it's disgraceful the way kangaroos, our native animal, can be killed because they interfer with farming. it's not their fault they have to wreck the fences that farmers put up when they are obstacles in their otherwise natural environment.
having said that it is not right to criticise farmers after all they've been through with the drought etc
There was another story published after this one with all the Skippy references, and a picture of Lulu.
(my first dog was named Skippy)
The story said the family found Lulu because her mother was killed in a road accident. Apparently Lulu went everywhere with the farmer, and even though the children played with her, as she grew up she followed the farmer everywhere.
