I double dare you to watch this video and not say ‘awwww’ at the end.

Police in Western Australia have released a video on their Facebook page showing an orphaned baby kangaroo called Cuejo.

Constable Scott Mason, an officer at Cue police station, is seen giving a talk when the four-month-old joey jumps into his shirt, wrapping himself up like a pouch.

Later in the clip he’s seen hopping along through the station behind the officer.

Constable Mason from Cue Police Station thanks everyone for their input into the naming of the cute little rescue Joey….

According to The Telegraph, Cuejo was rescued after its mother was killed by a truck.

Mason has adopted the little ‘roo, but Cuejo’s not the only child in his life – he told media outlets his wife had recently given birth to their first child.

Sounds like he’s got a busy few months ahead of him…
