Giant kangaroo rescued from Boomer's house

Trentham wildlife rescuer Manfred Zabinskas got more than he bargained for ... whe he was asked to catch an injured 90kg kangaroo at the home of former Kangaroos footballer Brent Harvey.

The Melbourne vet that treated the marsupial has dubbed it Hugh Heffner - after the late founder of Playboy.

Hugh has to be tranquilized each time his dressings are changed and he is expected to be released into the wild in a few weeks.

We asked  Manfred to explain what happened on the day ... 

Manfred says tranquilising and nursing Hugh - as well as other wildlife - is expensive.
