Public urged to treat wallabies with care

Some sculptures already damaged

The team behind the new fibreglass wallaby models dotted around the Island are urging people not to climb on them, or the plinths they sit on.

Wallabies Gone Wild says it's delighted to see so many people out and enjoying the trail, but say the sculptures need to be treated with care.

It's because the wallabies will be auctioned off when the trail finishes, to raise money for Hospice Isle of Man, and any damage sustained could have a significant impact on the funds which could be raised.

There are 64 sculptures in all, and they're set to be on display for the next 14 weeks.
