World's Cutest Baby Recovers After Attack By Bloodthirsty Chickens

Yep, chooks are basically velociraptors.

This beautiful little baby echidna was brought to Sydney's Taronga Zoo earlier this month with scratches over its tummy and back legs, after being attacked by a brood of bloodthirsty chickens in a backyard near Newcastle. 🐓🐓🐓😬

After emergency first aid the puggle – still too young for vets to determine its gender – made a remarkable recovery in the care of Taronga Wildlife Hospital supervisor Annabelle Sehlmeier. 🤕 🚑 🙌

“We’re not sure if the baby was alone because its mother died or because it was accidentally dug out of its nursery burrow,” Annabelle told BuzzFeed. 😢

“Normally a baby echidna would feed every three to five days, but this little one wants to feed every day," said Annabelle. "I guess it’s making up for lost time." 🍼 🍼 🍼 🍼 🍼 😍
