The Star Malaysia - - World -

SYD­NEY: A koala sur­vived a 16km road trip cling­ing to the axle of a four-wheel drive ve­hi­cle, be­fore the driver stopped and heard the cries of the trau­ma­tised an­i­mal.

The fe­male koala had crawled into the wheel arch while the car was parked in the hills on the out­skirts of Ade­laide.

The fire brigade was even­tu­ally called to take the wheel off in or­der to help a wildlife res­cue worker free the an­i­mal.
