Lucky koala

South Burnett Times - - NEWS -

HE MIGHT be Aus­tralia’s tough­est koala, or per­haps the luck­i­est. The mar­su­pial, hit by a car near Mary­bor­ough early Fri­day, clung to the car’s grille for 88km – all the way to Gympie.

He was spot­ted hang­ing on when the car pulled in to a Bruce Hwy Shell ser­vice sta­tion about 2am. A Gympie taxi driver helped the car’s oc­cu­pants keep the koala from wan­der­ing onto the road and called Bent St Vet’s per­ma­nently on-duty Ge­off Col­lyer to help.
