An Australian woman found that her Christmas tree had a new ornament after a live koala wandered inside and snuggled up the branches.
Amanda McCormick found that her Christmas tree had a new ornament after a live koala wandered into her home and snuggled up the branches of the white pine.
Lucky for the internet, she took pictures before calling a wildlife rescue group, 1300KOALAZ.
“Our hotline operator took a call,” the charity wrote on FB. “At first she thought she was the victim of a prank call.”
They merrily reported that the koala was “desperate to get in the Christmas spirit.”
Amanda, who lives in Coromandel Valley in southern Australia, is not alone. Dee Hearne-Hellon, the co-founder of 1300Koalaz, says koalas are occasionally known to sneak into houses.
After last year devastating fire, it is nice to see a Koala safe
