Melbourne, Australia, May 9, 2009--A gray kangaroo (pictured) that was shot through the head with an arrow had survived for up to a week before being found in the southern city's outer suburbs.

The injured marsupial, which underwent surgery at the Melbourne Zoo, is expected to recover.

Meanwhile, the conservation group Wildlife Australia has posted an Australian $10,000 (U.S. $7,600) reward to find the kangaroo's shooter, according to the Agence France-Presse news agency.
