Captured Bandicoot Can’t Wait To Go Free

A little bandicoot couldn’t wait to wriggle free and disappear into the bush after being captured by rangers in Victoria, according to video footage posted on April 13.

Rangers from the state’s Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning captured 40 bandicoots during a population survey at the Hamilton Community Parklands.

“Using 120 cage traps, the team captured 40 bandicoots. From this, it’s estimated that there would be 80 to 100 bandicoots at the parklands” a spokesperson said.

“By the end of the year, we’re hoping there’ll be up to 150 of the endangered animals at the site.”

It looks more like a bandiscoot!
