Vets treat kangaroo mother shot with arrow

A kangaroo that survived for four days with an arrow lodged in her head has been successfully treated in Queensland, Australia.

Vets at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital performed surgery to remove the arrow, which came very close to her skull and brain.

The kangaroo and her joey (baby) were released back into the wild after the operation.
