Young Kangaroo Likes Her Drop Of Beer

JOEY, an 18-month-old blue kangaroo doe owned by Mr. W. J. Parsons, manager of the Largs Pier Hotel, Largs Bay, (South Australia), joins her owner in a glass of beer every day-but no more. Joey was first caught licking up spilt beer from the bar floor, so she was put on the free list. Joey also likes to play round with the cash register.
