An woman posted a picture to Facebook of a baby wombat she had rescued from the side of the road.
It should have been a heartwarming rescue tale, but it soon took a very awkward turn when one of her friend’s mistook the hairless marsupial for her baby.
“OMG congratulations! He’s beautiful. I miss you so much,” the friend wrote.
As if that wasn’t bad enough it took the friend eight hours to realise their mistake.
“I didn’t look properly. I thought you’d had your baby. I’m so sorry. OMG.”
Facebook is fucking wild. pic.twitter.com/JZ3Klsu7Im
