They delivered him into the hands of Fauna Rescue of South Australia, a nonprofit wildlife rescue. The baby wombat, now called Whisper, will be cared for until he's ready to be released into the wild.
Jane Budich, a volunteer with Fauna Rescue who is now nursing Whisper back to health, told Australia's NTNews that Kotza and Dimasi did the right thing.
"They did a brilliant job," she said. "I can't thank them enough for what they did and how they did it and how gently they did it."
Thousands of wombats, kangaroos and wallabies die each year after being hit by cars on Australia's rural roads. If it weren't for Kotze and Dimasi's concern and quick response, Whisper the baby wombat would have become just another statistic.
After the rescue, Kotze posted on his Facebook page:
"had a unexpectedly amazing Saturday morning. Chris an myself are now proud fathers of 3 month old wombat"
He also included a word of advice for his fellow drivers:
"i would like to say if you hit an animal please move it off the road an make sure its not suffering."
