That Koala from the Fires – Video

Via A.E.Brain, video of the rescue of that koala who was stuck, dehydrated and with burnt paws, after the Victoria bushfires.

More here at the Herald, showing Sam’s journey on the mend. She now has another koala to cuddle.

You can donate to Wildlife Victoria here.

The RSPCA is also working to assist animals affected by the fires, and if you can drop a few more pennies to the Red Cross’s relief effort, they’d appreciate your help too.

  1. Aw, bless. Though someone needs to tell her, relationships based on extreme circumstances never work out…
    Deus Ex Macintosh’s last blog post..The B-Word

  2. There’s a photo gallery of David Tree coming to visit Sam in the wildlife shelter too.

  3. OK I just cried like a baby watching those videos. Although I also got a little giggle out of Sam walking with her bandages… she was walking like a cat with tape on its paw. Or maybe koalas always walk like that.
    Bless her heart.

  4. This is pretty gut wrenching. It shows a woman reunited with her dogs. The way she is crying and holding on to her dog in the first photo is so powerful.
